Three fundamental challenges related to different types of lock-in effects, different interoperability issues, and long-term maintenance scenarios are addressed by the project.

The overarching goal of  LIM-IT is to develop, use, and scrutinise effective work practices and strategies for development, procurement, and organisational implementation of software systems in a number of complex application domains, where such software systems with associated digital assets typically involve several open source projects (as well as proprietary software), often depending on many different legacy systems.
