Academic OSPOs: Fostering open source culture at Universities

TODO Group | OSPOlogy

Wednesday, November 17, 2021, 4:00 – 4:45 PM UTC



About this event

The way to manage OSPOs can be very diverse when going from one sector to another. OSPOs at Universities (AKA Academic OSPOs) is a great example. In this OSPOlogy episode, Stephen Jacobs will take us through the years of work behind the Open@RIT program, a key research center of the university which serves as the RIT's Open Programs Office.

During the session, the audience will also be able to learn best practices to foster a collaborative engine for faculty, staff, and students. We will also dig into RIT's new community health analytics platform called Mystic with Georg Link, director of sales at Bitergia and CHAOSS co-founder. Mystic is a new system that utilizes GrimoireLab, an open source toolkit developed by CHAOSS software that provides metrics and analytics for open source projects.
