Descripción del evento
BUILDING EUROPE’S DIGITAL SOVEREIGNTY: THE ROLE OF OPEN SOURCE, EDGE COMPUTING, AND GAIA-X

Acerca de este evento

In early March 2021, the European Commission presented its 2030 Digital Compass, a concrete vision and specific targets for Europe to become a leader in the digital space over the next decade. The document acknowledged Europe’s vulnerabilities, its increased dependency on critical, often non-EU based, technologies, and the reliance on a few big tech companies, with less than 4% of the top online platforms being European. That digital transition, in which the European Union has agreed to invest at least a 20% of the Recovery and Resilience Facility, requires Europe to strengthen its own cloud infrastructure and capacities and to develop strategic technologies. In this virtual event, it will be discussed by several experts the role that open source, edge computing and GAIA-X are expected to play in the process of building Europe’s digital sovereignty, and both the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead.
