Why open digital infrastructure matters

hardware & software infrastructure for Europe


Software freedom can be defined in many ways but in legal terms it is squarely defined by a set of approved FSF and OSI software licenses. Yet everyone realizes that beyond these licenses the goal of software freedom and digital sovereignty cannot be achieved without the ability to master and create hardware components and systems – and beyond that, to rely on open digital infrastructure (servers, datacenters, and resources) . This talk will present the challenges around these topics and what we, collectively in Europe already do and can do to ensure our independence and our freedoms.
