To follow up our successful Pre-FOSDEM event in February, OFE and FSFE
are happy to welcome you to our EU FOSS Policy Meeting, 26 September
2019. It will take place at Club de la Fondation Universitaire in Brussels.

We stated our goal to reinvigorate the Free and Open Source Software
advocacy in Brussels at the Pre-FOSDEM, and our goal is to now turn this
into action. During the next coming years, we want to increase our
ambitions, and move to be more proactive in Brussels. The time is
opportune, as we have seen a near total shift of main digital
policymakers in the institutions. Moreover, there is the rapid interest
in the adoption and use of Free and Open Source Software, both from the
market and within the European Institutions.

For those of you who are not able to attend in person, we will provide
the possibility to join remotely.

Open Letter

As part of the EU FOSS policy event, we hope to have a signing ceremony
for an open letter we would like to co-develop with you. The draft
letter has a clear EU focus, but also brings up Member State-relevant
policy recommendations. We invite you to give as much constructive input
until Friday 8 September (so that we have time to consolidate the
comments into a stable draft, which we can agree upon ahead of September

It is our hope that we can find a position that we can all agree on, so
that we can present a strong unified line in the European context.
