Do you participate in an Open community or business?
Our participants are specialists in open source software, open hardware and open data or those who want to learn more. They benefit from our organisational infrastructure to meet, learn and pursue collaborative projects.
We are organised under the 3 Pillars, Community, Legal and Policy and Learning with various committee and work group activities within those. We welcome participation. Participation in any OpenUK committee, activity or event is open to all but subject to our Participants’ Code of Respect and the OpenUK Competition Policy. By participating you agree to comply with these.Join us
