Osvaldo Gervasi

My first activity related to the project was during the Conference in Orvieto in 2009, where, as President of the Open Source Competence Center of Umbria, I chaired a session focused on Open Source Solutions for European Public Administrations. I inspired the LibreUmbria project and co-founded LibreItalia. I joined The Document Foundation in 2013 and served in migration to LibreOffice Projects (LibreUmbria and the migration of the Italian Army). I'm part of the Italian Localization Team.. I'm involved on a regular basis in dissemination and tutorial activities on LibreOffice in Primary and Secondary schools. I'm a Certified Professional Trainer and a Certified Migration Professional (until Dec 31, 2017). I'm Aggregate Professor at the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science of University of Perugia, Italy. I live in Spello (PG), Italy.
