3rd ENLIGHT RISE and Arqus Alliance Open Science Ambassador Webinar on 29 April

Registration is open for the 2nd ENLIGHT RISE and Arqus Alliance Ambassador Webinar Series on Open Science

Our next ENLIGHT RISE and Arqus Alliance Open Science Ambassador Webinar will take place on 29 April 2024, 10:00-11:30 (CET).

Pablo Garcia, Professor of Computer Science, University of Granada (Arqus Alliance) will be talking about Open Source Software and Open Licenses - A practical approach.

What is the relation between Open Science and Software Licenses? What is the difference between Free Software and Open Source? Which process should I follow to share my software?

In this presentation, we will demystify various software licenses, ranging from permissive ones like MIT and Apache to copyleft licenses such as the GNU General Public License (GPL). We will demonstrate how the choice of a particular license can influence the accessibility, distribution, and reuse of scientific software, highlighting the pivotal connection between open-source licensing and the principles of Open Science.
