Linux Foundation Europe Launches Advisory Board To Accelerate Impact of Pan-European Open Collaboration

With diverse representation of European industrial, technology, non-profit leaders, the Advisory Board will influence the direction of Linux Foundation Europe and its 100+ member community.

Brussels, Belgium–May 4, 2023– Linux Foundation Europe is excited to announce the members of the Linux Foundation Europe Advisory Board (LFEAB), which includes representatives from a cross-section of 20 leading European organizations within the EU, the UK, and beyond. Members of the Board represent a range of organizations by size and industry, each with a shared vision for open source collaboration. The Advisory Board will play an important role in stewarding Linux Foundation Europe's growing community, which now spans 100 member organizations from across the European region.

"Open source in this time and age is not only critical to the success of technology companies, but to the very business of traditional industries undergoing digital transformation. That’s why I’m thrilled the LF Europe Advisory Board includes such a broad representation from different verticals, companies of all sizes, and from over 10 countries in Europe. Their collective vision and active commitment will maximize the impact and alignment of our open collaborations with European values and priorities," said Gabriele Columbro, General Manager of Linux Foundation Europe.

The broad representation of Linux Foundation Europe’s Participants across the European Union, UK and United States is crucial, helping drive forward LF Europe's mission of enabling regional collaboration on shared priorities, without fostering increased fragmentation and techno nationalism. Additionally, to ensure strong community representation, Linux Foundation Europe's projects will be able to appoint a representative as Advisory Board observer.

"The Linux Foundation has played a critical role in advancing open source, and I am honored to have the opportunity to contribute to its efforts in Europe. As a long-time contributor to the Linux kernel, I understand the power of collaborative development and the importance of open standards. I look forward to helping shape the future of open source in Europe and beyond," said Greg Kroah-Hartman, Linux Foundation Fellow and maintainer of the Linux Foundation stable kernel branch.

The Advisory Board, which hosted its inaugural meeting in April during Kubecon + CloudNativeCon Europe 2023, will have a broad set of responsibilities, which includes providing guidance for LF Europe to engage with the public sector regarding project participation, as well as in response to critical legislation impacting the technology ecosystem – a current example being the Cyber Resilience Act (CRA), AI Act, Digital Services and Digital Markets Act.

The inaugural advisors on the LF Europe Advisory Board are:

Philipp Ahmann, Bosch

Lucian Balea, RTE

Debora Comparin, Thales/Secure Identity Alliance

Philippe Ensarguet, Orange

Felix Faassen, TomTom

Peter Giese, SAP

Samuel Iglesias Gonsálvez, Igalia
