Summary: Please enter a summary of the Report.
Open source has been reported to accelerate innovation, improve
code quality, and increase efficiencies within organisations.
It is recognised as being central to all future technological
advancements. InnerSource, which seeks to leverage open
source principles and create communities behind a corporate
firewall, is linked to removing silos and bottlenecks, improving
collaboration and developer productivity.

Open source is now critical for both the private and public sector.
98% of the world’s software now contains open source software. The European Commission’s Open Source Strategy 2020-2023 identified open source software as an enabler for innovation
and the Commission also recently released a study showing
that open source software and hardware are key for the region’s
digital transformation and can be a major boost to the region’s
GDP. Industry reports confirm there is a global shortage of
qualified open source and InnerSource talent.
Following a multi-stage study involving a survey and a series
of interviews with experts from industry and the public sector
in Ireland, we find that there is a broad set of skills required for
optimal use and creation of open source software and hardware.
Skills required include technical engineering skills as well as
non-technical skills such as legal, sales and marketing. Local
businesses, international companies based in Ireland, and Irish
public sector organisations all report challenges in finding talent
locally with the required practical experience to help them deliver
their open source and InnerSource priorities.
Investing in developing open source and InnerSource skills
would help fulfil the talent needs of Ireland’s organisations.
Considering the global talent shortage in this space, it would
help position Ireland as a leader in the broader open source and
