  10. <p>Free Software Foundation Europe helps individuals and organisations to
  11. understand how <a href="/about/basics/freesoftware.html">Free Software</a>
  12. contributes to freedom, transparency, and
  13. self-determination. We enhance users' rights by abolishing barriers to Free
  14. Software adoption, encourage people to use and develop Free Software, and
  15. provide resources to enable everyone to further promote Free Software in
  16. Europe.</p>

  19. <li>
  20. <h3><a href="/activities/policy/eu/policy-goals.html">Policy</a></h3>
  21. <p>
  22. We work with policy makers and public bodies in Europe to enhance the
  23. rights of Free Software users and developers and to abolish barriers
  24. to Free Software.
  25. </p>
  26. <ul>
  27. <li><a href="/activities/policy/eu/policy-goals.html">Our policy goals for 2014-2019</a></li>

  30. <li>
  31. <h3><a href="/activities/ftf/ftf.html">Legal</a></h3>
  32. <p>
  33. In our legal team, we collect and share knowledge about
  34. legal and licensing aspects of Free Software, safeguard the
  35. interests of Free Software projects, connect experts
  36. throughout the world and help other groups achieve similar
  37. goals. We provide
  38. assistance, <a href="/activities/ftf/education.html">training</a>
  39. and <a href="/activities/ftf/documentation.html">documentation</a>,
  40. in partnership with gpl-violations.org and members of the
  41. European Legal Network.

  48. <h3><a href="/about/team.html">Public Awareness</a></h3>
  49. <p>
  50. Informing the public about Free Software is part of FSFE's
  51. core mission. Many people in the organisation are experts on
  52. various Free Software topics, and can be contacted about
  53. giving authoritative talks, holding workshops, or
  54. participating in discussions.
  55. </p>
  56. </li>
  57. <li>
  58. <h3><a href="/activities/os/os.html">Open Standards</a></h3>
  59. <p>
  60. <a href="/activities/os/def.html">Open Standards</a> allow
  61. people to share all kinds of data freely and with perfect
  62. fidelity. They prevent lock-in and other artificial barriers
  63. to interoperability, and promote choice between vendors and
  64. technology
  65. solutions. FSFE's <a href="/activities/os/os.en.html">work on
  66. Open Standards</a> has the goal of making sure that people
  67. find it easy to migrate to Free Software or between Free
  68. Software solutions.
  69. </p>
  70. </li>
  71. <li>
  72. <h3><a href="/activities/procurement/procurement.html">Public
  73. procurement</a></h3>
  74. <p>
  75. Free Software is a perfect fit for the public sector. It brings
  76. efficiency to government, transparency to citizens, and competition to
  77. business. FSFE works with public bodies throughout Europe to improve
  78. public IT procurement and open up opportunities for Free Software.
  79. </p>
  80. </li>
  81. <li>
  82. <h3><a href="/campaigns/swpat/swpat.html">Software patents in Europe</a></h3>
  83. <p>
  84. Software patents are a menace to society and economy. They
  85. restrict innovation, damage businesses and put collaborative
  86. creativity in great danger. FSFE fights to keep Europe free
  87. of software patents, and works at the UN level to abolish
  88. software patents around the world.

  91. <li>
  92. <h3><a href="/activities/policy/eu/eu.html">European Union</a></h3>
  93. <p>
  94. FSFE works with the <a href="/activities/policy/eu/eu.html">European
  95. Commission and European Parliament</a> to create a positive
  96. environment for Free Software and Open Standards in
  97. Europe. We fight against monopolies and for <a href="/campaigns/swpat/novell-cptn.html">competition</a>
  98. in the software market by participating as an interested third
  99. party
  100. in <a href="/activities/ms-vs-eu/ms-vs-eu.html">antitrust</a>
  101. cases. We inform policy makers about the opportunities that
  102. Free Software offers, and push for interoperability.

  109. <h3><a href="/activities/education/education.html">Education</a></h3>
  110. <p>
  111. FSFE actively promotes the use of Free Software in schools and
  112. universities. Free Software is pedagogically superior, its
  113. basic spirit involving freedom and cooperation is the same
  114. spirit of education in a democratic environment.

  117. <li>
  118. <h3><a href="/activities/un/un.html">United Nations &amp; WIPO</a></h3>
  119. <p>
  120. FSFE has been active at the United Nations level since 2002,
  121. helping to create a free and equitable global information
  122. society. We hold observer status at the <a
  123. href="/activities/wipo/wipo.html">World Intellectual
  124. Property Organization</a>.
  125. </p>

  128. The Free Software Foundation Europe has worked on many other issues and
  129. campaigns. See our <a href="/campaigns/finished.html">Finished And
  130. Discontinued Projects</a> for details of what we've achieved.
