The freedom of the Internet concerns us all

As committed Europeans, our goal is to lay the ground for an open, transparent and independent internet search in Europe and beyond – so that Orientation on the WWW becomes a public, transparent and freely available good, and a new variety of search engines and other novel services emerge.

To achieve this, people with different professional backgrounds as well as research institutes and computer centres are working hand in hand at the Open Search Foundation. This cooperation is an important pillar of our work, as is the promotion of research in the field of search engines and raising public awareness.
