In addition, we use the public channels for communication with the projects and support other users with questions in forums, in IRC channels, etc.

The Conference for Digital Sustainability

Digital transformation is ubiquitous. How can we ensure that progressive digitalisation also generates sustainable benefits for our society? The principle of digital sustainability offers an answer to this question. Digital sustainability describes how digital knowledge assets (data, content, software) need to be created and made accessible in order to create the greatest possible benefits for society and the environment. In concrete terms, this concerns current political challenges around digitalisation in Switzerland, in innovation and research, in data protection, copyright and in technical topics such as open data.

Adfinis was part of the founding team and continues to be actively involved in the OK of DINAcon.



Parliamentary Group Digital Sustainability

The Parliamentary Group On Digital Sustainability promotes the sustainable and innovative use of information and communication technologies (ICT) and promotes public access to knowledge.

Adfinis is a partner of Parldigi and provides resources and time to support Parldigi's initiatives.

CH Open

Association for the Promotion of Open Source Software and Open Standards in Switzerland

Since its foundation in 1982, the independent association CH Open (Swiss Open Systems User Group) has been committed to promoting open and free systems. The activities focus on training and the exchange of information among the members.

Through various events and activities, CH Open promotes the theoretical and practical expertise of its members in the fields of Linux and other open source software. The events also offer an excellent opportunity to connect with others.

CH Open is also active behind the scenes. The association is involved in commissions and activities such as eCH, ICTswitzerland and swissICT for open source software.

Through the extensive network of relationships, there are close contacts with the private sector and with public administrations. As a result, CH Open's commitment to open source software is widely perceived.

Adfinis is a long-time member and sponsor of CH Open and is represented on the board of the association. We actively support the activities of CH Open.



Open Source Business Alliance

The Open Source Business Alliance (OSB Alliance) is Europe's largest network of companies and organizations that develop, build on or apply open source software.

The goal of the OSB Alliance is to make open source software and other forms of open collaboration more successful. The OSB Alliance achieves its goals by disseminating information, creating a positive framework for manufacturers and users, and by actively networking manufacturers, customers and service providers. Interoperability between various open source systems as well as with proprietary software plays an important role.

Adfinis is a member of OSBA and is closely associated with THE core persons and companies of OSBA.



Pfadi and Asyl

Pfasylworks to ensure that refugee children have contact with young people in their host country who are interested in them and offer them opportunities to learn about the culture, language and life. Children from different backgrounds find a place in the group, where they experience for a short time a counter-draft to their everyday life as refugees. Adfinis appreciates the work done in the area of inclusion and integration and supports the project as a sponsor.

For a common future

We are the ICT Scouts Supporter! On the one hand, the association is financed by membership fees, in particular by teaching companies that benefit most directly from the funding activities, by sponsors, foundations, and by the public authorities.
