Concertation meeting of H2020 projects from unit "Cloud and software"

 

New cloud services and software for the Digital Single Market (invitation only)

Concertation meeting of H2020 projects from unit "Cloud and software"

28 June 2017 | NetFutures 2017, Brussels

 


 

With trusted and interoperable services essential for a thriving Digital Single Market, projects need a clear understanding of the cloud market and the supply chains within it. This workshop identifies the direction market players need to take to make cloud a trusted and resilient commodity that can enable innovation in Europe.

With the market in mind, participants will also come together in a series of thematic break-out sessions to identify future priorities for interoperability and security standardisation efforts. With a wealth of expertise and project assets emerging from R&I efforts, projects need to step-up efforts to actually take results to market. We’ll showcase best practices and highlight key lessons on how projects can map technology readiness levels to market readiness levels in line with exploitation plans or plans for commercial viability of project outputs.

With the EC clusters meeting during the Concertation meeting and a strong presence from the EC, all projects in Unit E2 "Cloud and Software" are expected to be represented at this meeting.

 

AGENDA

09:00 - 09:30 Registration & Networking Coffee
09:30 - 09:50

Towards a resilient and trusted cloud market – What the market needs

Reducing frictions between cloud buyers and sellers, and building trust in the Digital Single Market is essential. The cloud offers opportunities galore in terms of launching innovative solutions on the market. In this session, we set the scene for a resilient cloud market, and discuss the value of services that lead to greater trust and uptake of cloud.

Chair: Nicholas Ferguson, Trust-IT Services & CloudWATCH2 Coordinator

09:30 – 09:35 Welcome and a perspective from the EC

Pierre Chastanet, Acting Head of Unit, Cloud and Software

09:35 – 09:50 A roadmap towards a resilient and trusted European cloud market James Mitchell, Strategic Blue & CloudWATCH2

09:50 - 10:40

Market & Technology Readiness - Getting from Project to Product

Chairs – Frank Bennett, iCloud and Michel Drescher, University of Oxford & CloudWATCH2

This session intends to bring together selected EC funded projects that have already compiled a service offering as part of their intended legacy, and will end soon, with SMEs that are looking for innovations that are or soon will be ready to be brought to the market. CloudWATCH2 has worked with a select group of projects for analysing their product and service portfolio for market readiness, and map these onto similar projects in a larger cloud landscape for signposting cloud standards profile development, supporting projects on the technical level. We have also supported these projects in their analysis and their solutions’ market potential and, where attractive, to undertake the first steps in capitalising on these assets.

The goals are to help these projects pitch their idea, build a business model canvas session, develop a business case starting with the end user problem being addressed, advice on packaging the ‘big idea’ and enabling the cross pollination of ideas for business models between projects as a source of valuable feedback.

Feedback will be provided for the following things:

·       Pitching & Communication

·       Commercial Potential

·       Business Models

·       Go To Market Strategy

·       Funding Strategies

·       Online Media

·       Tools & Planning

  • CLARUS - Gennaro Fontanarosa, Trust-IT Services

Achievements and New Directions for the EC Clusters

Chair: David Wallom, University of Oxford & CloudWATCH2

This session will see the continuation of the EC Clusters on Cloud Computing. Newly-funded projects will be invited to present their objectives and identify how they can contribute to the already active clusters in 4 break-out sessions. The session will also showcase the achievements of the clusters since their launch and focus on revising objectives based on the activities of new projects and EC expectations.
