Factsheet :: FOSS projects and the European Research & Development Framework Programme
4 December 2008
As part of its research funding activities the European Commission has been funding research into Free, Libre and Open Source software (FOSS) for a number of years. Many projects make use of existing FOSS, or release their results as FOSS. Some focus on FOSS itself, seeking to improve the technologies used and to remove barriers to FOSS adoption and use. These are the projects that are highlighted in this leaflet.
