Dear all,

I wish you a happy new year!

Yesterday, we published and submitted to the European Commission a
Position Paper for the endorsement of Free Software and Open Standards
in Horizon 2020 (and all publicly-funded research), as part of the
ongoing public consultation on the midterm evaluation of Horizon 2020,
the biggest research funding program in Europe ** open till 15.01.2017

The results of the consultation will define the 2018-2020 Horizon 2020
strategic goals as well as the post-Horizon 2020 framework funding

You can read the relevant news item here: and take a look at
the position paper itself here:

If you wish to contribute to the consultation, as an individual or as an
organisation, or share the position paper, there is a dedicated wiki
page with tips:

We strongly encourage everyone to participate to the consultation! Every
single submitted questionnaire matters! Feedback is highly appreciated,
as always. Feel free to share!

Kind regards,
