    Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) is rapidly growing in recent times and has changed the way in which licensing costs, sharing and distributions of software programs are managed globally. To a large extent, FOSS offers the cheapest and most effective solutions for technology transfer in software programs towards researchers and students worldwide. FOSS offers software free of charge online, including source code and all the information needed to allow easy adaptability to specific user needs. The research examines the benefits of transforming proprietary, public domain and free modelling codes and software for better river management and development. In order to achieve this goal, a conceptual framework called Hydrological Software Forum (HSF) is developed. The role of the HSF to ensure effective sharing and knowledge transfer among students and researchers has also been identified.. Read More»
