Software is a pervasive element in research, not only in Computer Science, for which it is natural to produce software artifact, but in all other disciplines too, where the need to manage and elaborate information pushes researchers to develop and maintain significant software tools. Open Source software coming from these research activities is a really interesting object for technology transfer, which is essential to produce the innovation on which the competitiveness of modern industry relies. By simplifying matters related to intellectual property, and building collaborative communities, Open Source software lends itself very naturally to fluid transfer and innovation activities. The path from the publishing of open source research software to the publishing of commercial one is a long maturation process which requires specific know-how. Several models will be presented and discussed by researchers being starting spin-off and by SMEs with successful stories. Expected attendees should mainly be researchers, TTOs (Technology Transfer Officers) and software publishing companies CTOs and CEOs who should be interested in this high-value software production.
