European Commission Meeting on Cloud Computing

The Creativity and Innovation Unit took part in a closed session held in Brussels throughout the morning 

On Tuesday May 20th from 10 am to 4 pm, the Creativity and Innovation Unit of the Barcelona Culture Institute (ICUB) took part in the meeting organised by the European Commission on Cloud Computing, a project aimed at promoting the use of the Cloud in all areas of the economy with a view to increasing productivity.

In September 2012, the European Commission launched a strategy to unlock the potential of Cloud Computing in Europe. The strategy included actions designed to accelerate and extend the use of Cloud Computing in all areas of the economy and is the result of comprehensive analysis of policies, regulations, and technologies and consultation with interested parties to identify the ways to maximise the potential of Cloud Computing.

The meeting opened with a presentation on the progress and current status of the strategy made by Mr Ken Ducatel, head of Software and Services, Cloud Computing Unit of the European Commission. During the morning session participants presented several case studies involving the implementation of cloud computing in the public sector, such as the deployment of an electronic shared infrastructure for the Government of the Isle of Man by Chief Technology Officer Mr Peter Clark, as well as various Cloud-based initiatives in different areas of society, in which the cities of Barcelona and Helsinki served as examples.
