Europe at the vanguard of creating trust in the cloud - A call for participation for SMEs

Trusted Cloud EIT ICT Labs
EIT ICT Labs just started an ambitious project aiming to create a European trusted cloud platform, which has issued a call for participation (CFP) to SMEs.

The project will see a raft of different partners working together in the same physical space on developing the components and technologies needed to turn Europe into a byword for trust in the cloud.

The project is open to SMEs with a strong business case able to kick-start the delivery of trusted products and services. Proposals should focus on at least one of three areas: Data connectors and data exploitation in personal data storage, trusted cloud solutions or data science experimentation.

Applicants can be potential users or customers of the trusted cloud platform, or can contribute to it in the form of components which provide new functionality, services or technology. EIT ICT Labs will support the selected SMEs with up to €50,000.

The deadline for proposals is February 13, 2015, after which an industry review board will evaluate the applications. You can find more information on the application process and the criteria upon which entrants will be judged here, and more details of the call for participation here.

EIT ICT Labs is also organizing a briefing event in London on January 19, 2015
