EU Petition Synopsis

Citizens and stakeholder groups should not have to use the software of a single company in order to communicate with their elected officials or participate in the legislative process.

All companies should be given the chance to compete freely for contracts to supply ICT services to the European Parliament.

I am a citizen of the EU, and I want the European Parliament to adopt the use of open standards and to promote interoperability in the ICT sector.

The OpenParliament petition has been granted an examination by the European Parliament petitions committee on 6 November 2008.

We will be given a chance to present our petition and experts Rishab Ghosh (UNU-MERIT) and Peter Strickx (FEDICT, Belgium) will give evidence. The European Parliament's DG for Innovation and Technological Support (ITEC) and the Commission's DIGIT will give statements. In addition, Hugo Lueders of CompTIA has requested time to present an "alternative" standpoint. Members of the European Parliament will then discuss and agree on possible action.

If you are interested in attending, please contact us in order to gain access to the European Parliament building. Thank you for your continued support.
