Free and open source software across the EU

2013 International Free and Open Source Software Law Review  
Across the EU, there is a groundswell of public administrations that use open source for their ICT solutions. Evidence of its benefits as well as practical examples are steadily piling up at the European Commission's Open Source Observatory. The areas where this type of solution can be found most include, in random order, content management (CMS), document management (DMS), database applications, all kinds of online e-government services, geo-information systems (GIS) and in most if not all publicly provided applications built to use open data.
