iFOSSF fulfills its objectives through a number of strategic Programs that drive a portfolio of enabling tactical Projects carried out jointly by iFOSSF partners and membership networks. All iFOSSF tactical projects must address the root causes of social, humanity or economical problems and lead to new ways of thinking and acting by using ICT FOSS as an enabler.
iFOSSF strategic programs are defined by the iFOSSF advisory board, they are reviewed yearly. The current program description can be viewed from the links under the "Strategic Program" block on the right.
Tactical projects are managed and led by individual project leads. Partners or individual iFOSSF members can either engage with existing iFOSSF projects or to propose new ones. The engagement can take in several forms from acquiring project funding, to joint project development to joint advocacy/cause-related marketing. Please read the Partnership and Community page for more information on participating and supporting our existing projects.
