    EC Welcomes Declaration by Member States on EU Cloud Federation

    October 15, 2020

    EC welcomed the joint declaration by 25 EU member states on building the next generation of cloud in Europe. The signatory member states agree to work together toward deploying resilient and competitive cloud infrastructure and services across Europe. A secure and competitive cloud offering is essential for providing the trustworthy data processing infrastructure and services. EC also highlighted that a European Alliance on Industrial Data and Cloud will be launched by the end of the year. Within this Alliance, interested member states, industries, and relevant experts will work together to design the detailed business, investment, and implementation plan to deploy the next-generation cloud capacities for the public and private sectors.

    Member states recognize the need for additional investment, enhanced synergies across national initiatives, and a coordinated strategy to lead the cloud uptake in the private and public sectors across Europe. In particular, as agreed in the Declaration, the joint actions of member states will focus on:

    • Combining private, national, and EU investment in deploying competitive, green, and secure cloud infrastructures and services. This will mean pursuing the next steps, together with industry and experts, to shape the European Alliance on Industrial Data and Cloud. This Alliance will enable the development of several workstreams, including joint investment in cross-border cloud infrastructures and services, European marketplaces for cloud services, and EU cloud rulebook.
    • Defining a common European approach on federating cloud capacities, by working toward one set of joint technical solutions and policy norms to foster pan-European interoperable EU cloud services.
    • Driving the take-up of more secure, interoperable, and energy-efficient data centers and cloud services, particularly for small and medium enterprises, startups, and the public sector.
