Open Source software Reference Implementations for Open Standards Developing a reference model for improved competitiveness

The ORIOS project is a collaborative research project running over three years, which involves Findwise AB, PrimeKey Solutions AB, RedBridge AB, and the University of Skövde. The project is financially supported by the Knowledge Foundation.

An overarching goal of this project is to improve understanding within organisations of Open Standards, Open Source Reference Implementations, and the ecosystems around them. This will be done by developing a reference model of necessary and desirable features of an Open Standard, and how Open Standards and their implementations can be utilised by small companies in different usage contexts.
