SEOUL — A state research institute in South Korea has upgraded its open-source research and development platform to allow anyone to make changes to computer programming codes or participate in various R&D projects.

Open source applications and platforms are based on the participation of people and their collective intelligence. Free-to-use programming applications have become a new paradigm in R&D fields. Various R&D projects can be simultaneously derived from a single open source project for further integration.

Many public organizations and private companies have adopted open source applications to accelerate the development of applications, services and technologies. Work efficiency is very high because open source platforms involve as many developers as possible to create an environment where innovative ideas can be freely created.

The Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute (ETRI) said its open source platform has been upgraded to cover compliance automation and open collaborative development environments. ETRI’s platform was launched in 2019. The institute promoted the innovative transition of South Korea’s R&D environment to an open community ecosystem. Collaborative workspaces were set up while young developers were incubated.

“We will continue to share ETRI’s open source knowledge and experience with other institutes, companies, academics and state communities. – said source center chief Lee Seung-yoon in a statement on May 10.
