a friend of mine is involved in an european project which promotes the 
use of ICT in public schools:

This project is coordinated by several Ministries of Education, but it's 
also supported by some big ICT players, as you can see here:

My friend is concerned about the presence of these companies. It's quite 
likely that they are going to use the project to promote their products. 
  As far as I can see, all these companies produce proprietary software 
or hardware.

What can we do to guarantee the presence of Free Software projects and 
companies in this project?  Is there any European directive which 
recommends the use of Free Software in such situations?

I think that FSFE may take a stand and do some "lobbying" about this 
project.  What do you think?
