Thank you very much Cornelia.
I am looking for a short and flashy title for the official GUADEC
"University Degree in Libre Software available in Europe"
We also need an abstract:
"The MoLOS Project
A large group of universities in Europe is working together to establish
a joint education and to offer a common Master Degree in Libre - and
Open Source Software = The MoLOS Project.-
The common goal being to make this education a global model to follow.
To meet the growing demand from governments, public - and private
administrations, education and health care sector, businesses and
organizations to get experts with a deep understanding of Free- and Open
Source Software. The benefits for the society are multiple. One example
is the successful impact of the development- and collaboration model of
Libre Software which can be a fine "tool" used not only in the software
business but in other sectors as well."
Please feel free to change both title and abstract compleately- if you
find it usefull.
