About the FSF Europe

The Free Software Foundation Europe (FSF Europe) is a non-profit NGO, currently recognised as a charity in Germany, dedicated to all aspects of Free Software in Europe. It is part of a global network of Free Software Foundations with the FSF North America (FSF NA), founded in 1985 by Richard M. Stallman, currently being the most prominent sister organisation. Information about the activities of the FSF Europe can be found at http://fsfeurope.org.

Since its founding in early 2001, the FSF Europe has already developed a presence in 7 European countries1 through its associated organisations2, local chapters and/or members from those countries. Presences in other countries are under development.

The FSF Europe played a key role in the decision to begin moving towards Free Software with the servers of the German parliament in order to reduce dependency on foreign monopolies and was also involved in the comments of the French government against the adoption of software patents.

Among other things, it participates in the K.A.IV 3.3 of the 5th European Commission framework programme as a partner of the ``AGNULA Project'' (IST-2001-34879).
