Software is a pervasive element in research, not only in Computer Science, for which it is natural to produce software artifact, but in all other disciplines too, where the need to manage and elaborate information pushes researchers to develop and maintain significant software tools.

Open Source software coming from these research activities is a really interesting object for technology transfer, which is essential to produce the innovation on which the competitiveness of modern industry relies. By simplifying matters related to intellectual property, and building collaborative communities, Open Source software lends itself very naturally to fluid transfer and innovation activities. It is thus possible to gain significant productivity in the building of complex software systems, reducing the R&D costs and increasing software reliability.

Good practices in technology transfer using Open Source, as well as difficulties one may encounter in the process, are the key subject of this track.
