The Free Software Foundation Europe recently published a “position paper for the endorsement of Free Software and Open Standards in Horizon 2020 and all publicly-funded research”.

Stephan Janosch is Research Software Engineer in Biosciences working for the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics.
