About the Event:

Building a European Data Infrastructure | What future for the European Cloud Federation?

Join representatives of the EU institutions, member states, businesses and other experts for a discussion on the roadmap to build a successful European Cloud Federation. As Germany and France present GAIA-X – a proposal for a decentralised cloud infrastructure – and as the European Commission prepares the follow-up to its Data Strategy, Forum Europe & HPE are pleased to host this discussion on the policies, business models and investments needed to design the blueprint for Europe’s future data economy infrastructure. The discussion will also analyse critical aspects of the project such as European data monetisation and data ownership.

Previous Edition's Highlights

The previous edition of the Public Sector Transformation event looked at how AI and high performance computing is being deployed across the public sector to provide participants an understanding of the opportunities that lie ahead in the next stage of the public sector modernisation process.
