Cloud technologies, and the Cloud-edge continuum, are key enablers to unleash the potential of the European data economy and digital sovereignty. They can ensure industrial and research competitiveness, providing secure data storage and sharing, as well as empowering applications and solutions ranging from artificial intelligence to simulation, modelling, digital twins, and high performance computing. The session will provide an overview of the European Union’s (EU) Cloud research projects landscape and discuss how research can support in overcoming the EU Cloud industry’s challenges. Different experts from the European Cloud Community will be on stage to discuss the needs of the Cloud industry. More specifically, the session aims to:

  • Understand, in different verticals, what are adoption challenges toward Cloud Computing.
  • Emphasise what have been so far good practises to Cloud adoption.
  • Elicit requirements future Cloud technologies should satisfy to support distributed data sharing and processing in the Cloud-continuum in different verticals.
  • Investigate how to better bridge the gap between research and commercialisation of Cloud innovative solutions.
