Why is Outreachy important in the context of BigDataStack?

BigDataStack introduced the European open- source initiative towards increased impact of project outcomes. The European Open Source Initiative is open to the complete research community, welcoming participation from EU-funded projects, industrial and academic institutions, and individual contributors.  As part of Big Data Stack, and related to Red Hat efforts on Kuryr OpenStack project, we have also requested and received funding for helping people getting familiarised with both the Kuryr project and how to contribute to Open Source communities. The topic of the outreachy position is "Add new IP protocol to Kuryr-Kubernetes"[2].
