Sharing Knowledge about Open Source Licenses at DLR

Title: Sharing Knowledge about Open Source Licenses at DLR

Authors: Andreas Schreiber:German Aerospace Center; Carina Haupt:German Aerospace Center

Abstract: In science, more and more software is published as Open Source software or uses Open Source projects. Therefore, scientists must be aware of requirements, restrictions and compatibility issues of Open Source licenses. We describe our strategy at the German Aerospace Center (DLR) to awake the awareness among our domain scientists and to enable and support them in publishing Open Source software, which is free of license issues. We provide hands-on material, offer training courses, and foster knowledge sharing between peer scientists. Findings and feedback prove the usefulness and effectiveness.
