The French Ministry for Research as recently spawned a new committee to foster and coordinate Open Science take up in France. One of its four work groups is on Free and Open Source Software, led by Roberto Dicosmo, long time Open Source advocate and initiator of the Software Heritage project.
Nicolas M. Thiéry, OpenDreamKit coordinator, was invited to join the work group.
