The TODO Group counts 66 for-profit companies to its members with a combined market cap of $15.8 trillion and open source funding of $5.2 billion. Research universities on the other hand are just beginning to harness the value of open source communities. One example is the UC Santa Cruz Center for Research in Open Source Software (cross.ucsc.edu) founded and directed by Carlos Maltzahn. In five years this OSPO v0 raised $4.5 million (including $2.5 million in industry membership fees) to teach students how to productively engage in open source, to fund cutting-edge research with impact potential on open source, and to incubate open source communities around high-impact research prototypes. In this talk Carlos will give an overview of the key lessons of OSPO v0 and how that has informed the design of OSPO v1 which is currently being developed for the campus level of UC Santa Cruz with the goal of becoming an OSPO for multiple University of California campuses. A key goal of OSPO v1 is to develop a playbook for other public research universities to leverage open source to create new opportunities to empower the scientific enterprise and expand the public’s access to knowledge.
