<body>
<h1>Interview with Elena Muñoz Salinero in the framework of our
"Public Money? Public Code!" campaign.</h1>

<p newsteaser="yes">In the framework of our "Public Money? Public Code!"
campaign we run a series of interviews to shed light on best practices
and help understanding the benefits of publishing publicly financed
software under a Free Software license. This time we have asked
Elena Muñoz Salinero, head of Telematics Systems Area within
the General Secretary of Digital Administration in Spain,
about best reusing practices between Spanish administrations with
the help of the government's Technology Transfer Centre.</p>

<p>Last year, the Free Software Foundation Europe started the
<a href="https://publiccode.eu/" target="_blanc">[Public Money? Public Code! campaign]</a>.</p>

<p>With this campaign, the FSFE demand that publicly financed
software developed for the public sector shall be made publicly available
under a Free and Open Source Software licence. To help understanding
our demand and its benefits, we highlight good examples of best practices
in a series of interviews with policy makers and decision takers,
admins and authorities that in one way or another do alreadyimplement
our demand.</p>

<p>In our first interview of this series, we have asked Elena Muñoz
Salinero, Head of Telematics Systems Area within the General Secretary
of Digital Administration in the Ministry of Finance and Public
Function of Spain. In this role she leads the Technology Transfer
Centre (CTT) of the Spanish Government, whose goal is to favor the
re-use of software solutions between public administrations by
publishing code under Free Software licenses. Read about the juridical
and technical background of the CTT as well as obligations on the
Spanish administration to use and reuse Free Software, about license
questions and how other administrations and users even outside of Spain
can benefit and contribute in our interview:</p>
