September 2013 - Biot, France - At Sophia Antipolis

by Jeanne Rasata Contributions Published on Oct 03, 2013 03:38 PM

RMS was at the Sophia Antipolis technological campus, in Biot, on September 19, to deliver his speech "A Free Digital Society," hosted by EURECOM, Telecom ParisTech, and SophiaTech Campus, to a diverse audience of students, local government officials, engineers, and researchers. Professor Ludovic Apvrille, from Telecom ParisTech's Communication and Electronics department, said that he hoped RMS's visit would be "followed by actions in Sophia-Antipolis, and more generally in France," and expressed his wish to see his school and students on a path to software freedom.
