In the past few years, as the input of open technology voices has been increasingly sought in public policy discussions in the EU, OpenForum Europe (OFE) is pleased to welcome the Mozilla and the Matrix.org Foundation as supporters. Although our organisations have long been collaborators in various capacities, this formal recognition of our partnership is particularly timely. The advocacy for increased understanding and appreciation of open source in recent years has underscored the critical need for even more cooperation between different organisations participating in public policy dialogues within the EU.
Mozilla, known for championing an open and inclusive internet, brings its significant expertise in leading community-driven, open source projects.
The Matrix.org Foundation, at the forefront of secure and decentralised communication, brings expertise around the importance of privacy, interoperability, and digital sovereignty in our connected world.
OpenForum Europe’s Executive Director, Astor Nummelin Carlberg, expressed his optimism regarding the emerging partnerships: “Acknowledging the importance of representing the ‘open’ ethos in shaping software regulations, OFE is delighted with the Mozilla and the Matrix.org Foundation’ support and is keen to enhance the collaboration among an expanding network of open source foundations and organisations in the policy space.”
OpenForum Europe has for over 20 years played a significant role in revealing the diverse opportunities that open technologies offer to European policy stakeholders and the broader global community of innovators.
