Software source code represents unique knowledge of humanity’s recent history. It is therefore crucial to work together collectively so that the knowledge embedded in software source code is properly preserved, valued and shared with all. This lies at the core of UNESCO’s cooperation with Inria to support the creation of Software Heritage, the global archive of software source code.
