Election 2023: Individual Members

Here is the list of candidates to the seat of Individual Members representative for the 2023 election of the OW2 Board of Directors




I have recently started working closely with OW2 in an EU project called NGI Search and have found the organization to be offering a tremendous service to the Open Source community. My motivation to join the board is to offer my own expertise and advice to OW2 and in return seek a closer collaboration and insights into OW2’s workings.
