What is the best cloud model for Europe’s public sector? Is Europe ambitious enough? And what policies are needed to liberate our data economy?

Public sector entities, ranging from government departments to hospitals, cities and universities, are faced with a pressing need to accelerate their digital transformation and to provide a better service to citizens while reducing their carbon footprint.

In light of the EU’s refreshed data strategy, with plans to create a genuine Single Market for Data, and national initiatives to create cloud federations, such as Gaia-X in Germany, the next edition of the HPE and Forum Europe Public Sector Transformation (PST) Conference will tackle the underpinning data and technological trends, including: improving data access while guaranteeing high-levels of privacy and unlocking the power of high-performance and edge computing.

Join representatives from government, business, academia, and civil society, to explore these themes and discuss how to work together to help bring about the next revolution in public sector transformation.

Key themes will include

  • Future technologies to accelerate eGovernment in Europe
  • A focus on the EU policy approaches that will accelerate the deployment of these technologies
  • The benefits that edge computing could bring to public sector transformation
  • How the European Processor Initiative (EPI) can support government and public sector IT
  • Ensuring the necessary competencies, skills and investments across the value chain
