Collaborative Projects

Why is OW2 engaged in collaborative projects?

We believe innovations in cloud computing, big data, IoT, privacy and security and artificial intelligence are becoming increasingly complex and require both new software engineering techniques and collaboration between competitors and contributions of stakeholders of different origins. We believe open source is a powerful strategy to facilitate such collaboration and thus to foster long-term radical innovations.

OW2 contributes its expertise in commercial open source community enablement, open source project lifecycle management and global dissemination of open source technologies as a partner in various collaborative projects. Please download the datasheet explaining how OW2 helps collaborative projects. 

Here is a quick overview of community support and dissemination services offered to collaborative R&D projects:


OW2 engages in projects that offer compelling synergies with the OW2 community, the OW2 codebase and OW2 initiatives

In which collaborative projects is OW2 currently engaged?

OW2 is involved in several collaborative projects. They are complex international and/or multi-partner projects. Below are the collaborative projects that OW2 is currently participating in:

  • STAMP  - Software Testing AMPlification 
  • CROSSMINER  - IDE-integrated cross project knowledge mining for open-source software development
