On January 24, 2019, the Free Software Foundation Europe (FSFE) released its policy brochure, "Public Money Public Code - Modernising Public Infrastructure with Free Software". OW2 is proud of its contribution to this brochure. 

Why should governments develop Free Software? Where is Free Software already generating benefits in the public sector? What are Free Software business models? Answers to these questions and practical guidelines are given in the new expert policy brochure published today by the Free Software Foundation Europe. Produced with decision-takers in mind, the brochure will be a helpful source of information for candidates and parties running for the European Parliament election. Downloads and prints are available under a Creative Commons license.

OW2 contribution is titled "Making Business and Economic Sense of Free Software". Written by CEO Cedric Thomas it explains how business models based on Free Software are changing the landscape of the European IT sector.
