Research results from SSRG and experiences from the European Parliament on policy issues concerning open source software and open standards were discussed during a seminar on 7 July 2017 in Almedalen (http://www.almedalsveckan.info/event/user-view/47703). Discussions covered legal and regulatory aspects which impact on opportunities for innovation and a range of challenges such as different implications of lock-in. The session stimulated discussions concerning ongoing activities in the EU and different member countries.
