European Open Source for Europe’s Next-Gen Edge Cloud

In early March 2021, the European Commission presented its 2030 Digital Compass, a vision for Europe’s digital transformation. It centres on developing IT skills, aiding the digital transformation of businesses, accelerating the digitalisation of public services, and developing secure and sustainable digital infrastructures. Against this policy background, several EU Member States are working together to develop a common industrial response to foster digitalisation in Europe through an Important Project of Common European Interest (IPCEI) on Next Generation Cloud Infrastructure and Services. The project aims to:

  • Enable multi-provider Cloud-Edge Continuum
  • Strengthen of EU digital industry
  • Develop of European open source technologies
  • Ensure openness and accessibility across Europe

This online event, delivered in English, will present open source cloud enterprise solutions that could help the EU Member State’s achieve the targets set out in the 2030 Digital Compass, while still ensuring European sovereignty. Indeed, open source cloud solutions are innovative, fully interoperable, highly secure, energy efficient and respectful of privacy measures. The event could not be timelier, with the European Commission’s latest Open Source Software Strategy 2020-2023 highlighting how open source solutions can “can give Europe a chance to create and maintain its own, independent digital approach and stay in control of its processes, its information and its technology”.
