OpenForum Academy is an independent programme established by OpenForum Europe. It has created a link with academia in order to provide new input and insight into the key issues which impact the openness of the IT market.
Central to the operation of OpenForum Academy are the Fellows, each selected as individual contributors to the work of OFA. A number of academic organisations have agreed to work with OFA, working both with the Fellows and within a network of contributors in support of developing research initiatives.
The Fellows are regular contributors to the work of OpenForum Europe, participate in our policy work, in research OFE conducts and as speakers at events aimed at policymakers in Brussels, acting as a bridge between academia and policy.
