Sponsorship of Open Culture Foundation and MOPCON 2020
In ARF’s forecast of future trends, development of digitalization and information technology is predicted to have critical impact on the way of living in the future. Thus, ARF has begun sponsoring large-scale open source forums in Taiwan since 2011 in the hope of contributing to knowledge sharing and talent cultivation in the industry through actual participation in related events.
Since 2017, ARF has been cooperating with the Open Culture Foundation (OCF), continuously investing in the IT industry by jointly organizing sponsorships. This year, it has organized sponsorship for COSCUP, SITCON and g0v Summit. The OCF is focused on promoting open source software, open data and open government in Taiwan. It is hoped that the OCF will utilize ARF’s sponsored resources effectively.
ARF is also continuing its sponsorships in southern Taiwan, hosting MOPCON (Mobile/ Open/ Platform Conference) annually. Currently, major IT events are mostly held in the north and MOPCON serves to balance the unequal distribution, and encourage the application and development of mobile technology in various aspects of everyday living.
