PROSE will contribute to the adoption of open source software on ICT projects, by increasing the lifetime of the software developed inside European projects and thus maximizing impacts. This will be achieved through the creation of a coordination platform for hosting software projects, as well as promoting dissemination and training events on Open Source topics.
