Technical University of Munich | Study on OSS Compliance


Dear OpenChain community,


My name is Juliane Wissel and I am currently doing my Ph.D. at the Technical University of Munich (Germany). I am inviting you to take part in a scientific study on the role of OSS compliance in the software supply chain.


What is the study about?
I investigate the role of OSS compliance for companies in the software supply chain. More concretely, the context of the study is the procurement of software that contains OSS components and that is used in companies or implemented into own products/services. I want to take into account the perspectives of experts from different departments (e.g., software procurement, product/software development, legal, sales, etc.).


Why should you take part?
For every completed questionnaire, five euros will be donated to UNICEF or WWF, according to your choice. Furthermore, I can share the study results with you to give you interesting insights into the role of OSS compliance for companies.


The study is designed to take about 15 minutes. All gathered information is highly confidential and anonymized and is only used for scientific purposes. Please use the following link to start the study:


If you know further experts in the areas of OSS compliance and software procurement, please also share this call for participation. I would like to thank you for supporting my research. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.


Kind regards,
Juliane Wissel
