Public Consultation on Cloud Computing, Software and Services

DG Connect (Unit E2) launches a web-based Public Consultation with a view to defining future research priorities in Cloud Computing, Software and Services, ahead of the H2020 ICT Work Programme 2014-15. All interested stakeholders (industry, research centres, academia, SMEs and users) are warmly invited to contribute.
Here you will find a draft document describing our initial thoughts on how the forthcoming ICT Work Programme 2014-15 could address the future research and innovation challenges in the sector. This document draws on the reports prepared by ISTAG in July 2012 and by the Cloud Computing Expert Group in December 2012, on NESSI ETP Position Papers and on Cloud Select Industry Group Research priorities.

You are kindly invited to comment on any aspects of the above-mentioned draft document.
You can submit your contribution to the consultation here.
The consultation will run from February 26th until April 2nd 2013.
What happens next?
When this consultation is completed, a post-consultation Workshop will be held in Brussels on Wednesday, 17 April 2013 in order to discuss and validate the views expressed by different actors during the consultation.
One of the goals of this Workshop is to bring together existing and new stakeholders, in particular from innovative technological SMEs and from the public sector with the aim of better focusing the Work Programme so as to maximise its impact on competitiveness and growth. 
The first H2020 Call for Proposals is expected to be published by the end of 2013. Hence, new projects are likely to be launched before the end of 2014 and, typically, will run for 2 or 3 years. Therefore, the Programme is expected to focus on infrastructures, services, technologies and innovation ripe for commercial deployment by the end of the decade.
Workshop Venue
Avenue de Beaulieu 25, 1160, Brussels, Belgium
