OSGi Alliance Liaison Executive Committee

The OSGi Alliance Liaison Executive Committee is chartered with the mission to establish and manage relationships with third parties on behalf of the OSGi Alliance and its members. Liaison organizations include standards development organizations, open source foundations and projects, educational institutions, other alliances and associations, and government entities.

By establishing a formal liaison with the OSGi Alliance, organizations can communicate with our expert groups to develop requirements to eventually become part of standardized OSGi specifications, following our processes. For additional information, please contact Rouzbeh Farhoumand, committee chairman, at liaisonec@mail.osgi.org. View a list of organizations currently working with the OSGi Alliance.
