About the Open Spectrum Foundation

In the summer of 2004, a project named Open Spectrum International began under the auspices of Czech Civic Association "Mista v Srdce." The aim was to promote awareness of "open spectrum" concepts outside North America, and to advocate the expansion of the radio bands available for license-exempt use. As we grew, it became clear that we needed an independent legal basis for our work. So in May 2005, we registered as a Dutch nonprofit foundation ("stichting") with offices in Amsterdam and Prague: Stichting Open Spectrum translates into English as the Open Spectrum Foundation.

We invite anyone who shares our interests and aims to contact us to discuss possible collaboration. We cannot intervene in policymaking without local partners, and we have a constant need for help with translations. Email us if you have information to contribute - or time, or contacts, or ideas...
