The EUBrasilCloudFORUM, funded by the European Commission (EC) and by The Ministry of Science and Technology of Brazil (MCTI), aims at establishing an organisational cooperation model that enables the EU and Brazil to formulate and develop a common strategy, draft a research Roadmap on and approach for Research & Innovation in Cloud Computing in line with the priorities of each region.
EUBrasilCloudFORUM will exchange views on how to support better access for consumers and businesses around innovative cloud services and solutions and maximise the growth potential of both Europe and Brazil. Furthermore, according to the EU-Brazil Information Society Dialogue, the EU and Brazil need to engage more on a dialogue on cloud computing that addresses general cloud policy aspects, personal data protection, trans-Atlantic flows of data, cloud infrastructures, portability of data, quality attributes like performance, reliability, security, privacy and maintainability for pHealth applications and appropriate remedies to vendor lock-in.
EUBrasilCloudFORUM will work to build a wide database of collaboration stories in both the EU and Brazil, to map researchers and projects and deliver a better understanding of the status of ICT research in the two regions.
EUBrazilCloudFORUM will support the development of the EU-Brazil Research and Innovation Roadmap and Action Plan on Cloud Computing. The community is welcome to take part of this project by registering here.
