IRILL - Research and Innovation on Free Software

The mission of IRILL, the Center for Research and Innovation on Free Software, is to bring together in one place leading researchers and scientists, expert FOSS developers, and FOSS industry players to tackle the three fundamental challenges that FOSS poses today:

  • Scientific: study, explore and solve the new problems raised by the development, maintenance and wildly varying evolution process of the large mass of code that FOSS gives access to.
  • Educational: adapt curricula for users, system administrators, and developers to prepare them for a computing infrastructure in which FOSS plays a prime role.
  • Ecomomic: contribute to create a sustainable ecosystem for the FOSS innovations.

IRILL's mission is to foster exchange of knowledge between FOSS developer communities and computer science researchers: new problems coming from the FOSS world will feed the work of researchers who are eager not only to find innovative solutions, but also to turn these solutions into tools that will improve the real-world, daily work of the FOSS communities. Developers and researchers will bring in their joint expertise to create new course materials for computing courses.
