Successful Cloud Computing Policy Cooperation between Europe and Brazil

EUBrasilCloudFORUM organises a two-day workshop during the EU-BR Policy Dialogue, 9th-10th November at the European Commission premises in Brussels to reach a consensus on future cooperation topics between the regions.

Cloud computing has been a catalyst for economic growth and new business opportunities – creating new business models, accelerating innovation and changing the economics of industries - but requires research advances to fully realise its potential. It’s important to foresee future challenges, gaps and opportunities to get the most out of the Cloud and to keep Europe and Brazil on the cutting edge of ICT. EUBrasilCloudForum is playing an instrumental role by coordinating groups of experts investigating Cloud Computing topics for future cooperation. Defining EU-Brazil co-operation priorities for future research on ICT -  particularly cloud computing, big data and the Internet of Things (IoT) - is at the core of the EUBrasilCloudFORUM Open workshop entitled “Successful cooperation for cloud computing policy”, which will take place on 9 and 10 November in Brussels, at the European Commission Premises.

During the event, the EUBrasilCloudFORUM excellence group of experts from European and Brazilian academia, industry, policy institutions, and members from EU-BR funded projects will provide valuable feedback regarding the core topics for the future collaborative calls in cloud computing that the consortium has identified. The purpose is to reach a consensus on future cooperation priorities between the two regions and to play a relevant role in the Policy Dialogue between the European Commission and MCTI/RNP.

What to expect:

  • § A deeper understanding of the Cloud research challenges of interest for the EU and BR communities
  • § A strategic agenda for the EU-BR collaboration that goes beyond 2020
  • § A list of experts to engage in the future roadmapping activities
  • § A draft text for the 5th EU-BR collaborative call

EU-Brazil 5th Call for Collaborative calls in ICT: your contribution counts.

EUBrasilCloudFORUM recently launched an open consultation about the main challenges for Cloud Computing development between EU-BR. The consultation results will be compiled in a report to both the European Commission and the Brazilian Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation.  The report will list future trends of cloud services in Brazil and Europe, measures to build trust and transparency as key to overcoming barriers to uptake, current collaborative research and innovation actions, and policy priorities. The document will have a relevant role in defining a research Roadmap for future collaboration priorities, in particular the 5th call.
