Working Group Economy

Identifying the economic value

In exchange with stakeholders from all the OSF working groups, from economy and politics, the working group Economy collects essential questions around operations of the envisaged search index and develops concepts for it. The primary aim is to determine the benefits of an independent open search infrastructure for the EU economy.

On the one hand, the Economy working group is investigating how an open search infrastructure can strengthen Europe as an economic area, and on the other hand, it is also looking at the implications of open search. We are looking into open source operating models and creating a target operating framework with the necessary phases and estimated investments per phase.
