Erasmus Intensive Programme in Developing Open Source System Expertise in Europe

05.03.2010

15 - 26 March 2010 Information Technology Degree Programme hosts an Erasmus Intensive Programme in Developing Open Source System Expertise in Europe.

70 students and 20 teachers from six partner institutions of higher education will meet at Helsinki Metropolia UAS in Espoo, Finland, to participate in the Erasmus Intensive Programme. The programme will last for two weeks. In those two weeks students from the partner institutions will work together on the topic in international teams.

The open source software platforms are used widely in European Union covering the offices of public administration and multiple type of businesses. The open source software products form an essential part of the ICT systems in many small and medium size business, government offices and non-profit organizations improving the competitiveness and cost effectiveness of operations.

The European Commission has in several occasions stated the importance of open source software and widely endorses the development and usage of open source software. The importance of open source software, also known as Free Software or Libre Software or FLOSS, has been recognised on the European Commission level which has launched the Open Source Observatory and Repository with the intention of supporting open source software as the epitome of collaborative development of software in the European public sector.

The aim of this IP is to exchange knowledge of and experience in local methods and techniques in the field of open source software knowledge in ICT by engaging a group of international students and lecturers in a joint, explorative investigation of contemporary methods of open source software systems. The target group consists of European engineering students who are interested in knowing which factors play a role in information systems and what the similarities and differences between the various national approaches in open source software systems and techniques are explored.

As an expected outcome the participating students will become competent in open source software related technologies and methods in a multidisciplinary environment and apply these to the development of information systems and to service provisioning in business cases.

Helsinki Metropolia UAS is a coordinator of this project and it is now carried out together with the following partner universities:

  • FH Joanneum University of Applied Sciences, Austria
  • Università degli Studi di Genova, Italy
  • Technická univerzita v Košiciach, Slovakia
  • Universidad de Alcalá, Spain
  • Transport and Telecommunication Institute (TTI), Latvia
