Marco Minghini, Scientific Project Officer at the European Commission, 
"Open source geospatial software is a key building block of many data 
infrastructures managed and operated by the European Commission, 
powering high-level, pan-European initiatives such as INSPIRE and 
Copernicus. The role of OSGeoLive to teach and promote the use of open 
source geospatial software has no equivalent. Big thanks to OSGeo and 
the OSGeoLive team!"

OSGeoLive 14 is ready to be used at events. It will be used at ​FOSSGIS 
Konferenz 2021 [3] in June and ​FOSS4G 2021 [4] in September 2021.
