In this talk, we describe how the Eclipse Foundation has developed and improved a model for industry collaboration in the open over the past 15 years. Starting in 2012 we have been working with different industry leaders in IoT, Automotive, Aerospace and others to create repeatable and adaptable governance models and processes for very focused and transparent collaboration efforts. We believe about 80% of all the software needed can be developed collaboratively and shared.

While this model is not a silver bullet, we strongly believe that it helps to develop modern stacks at lower cost, to allow faster deployment and enable our ecosystems to compete with bigger and more advanced industry players.

We will present what has worked and what did not work when setting up more than 20 different Working Groups, some of them being led by software companies, while other are created by automotive engineers that are users rather than creators of the technologies.
