Do you participate in an Open community or business?
Our participants are specialists in open source software, hardware and data, “Open”. They benefit from our organisation to meet, learn and pursue collaborative projects.
We work with the public and private sectors, industry organisations, NGO’s and the Government within the UK and internationally, creating a single voice for the UK Open communities.
If you are an individual or any form of organisation working with Open, OpenUK would love to have you participate in one or more of our many initiatives.
We work through Community Committees focusing on: Events, Learning, Legal and Policy, Museums (content), Universities, OpenUK Awards and OpenUK Week. We welcome participation from non-members.
Participation in any OpenUK activity or event is open to all but subject to our Participants’ Code of Respect and the OpenUK Competition Policy. By participating you agree to comply with these.
