On 2 February 2022, more than 275 stakeholders from industry, academia and innovators participated in the Information and Virtual Brokerage Session on the Horizon Europe Cloud, Edge, IoT 2022 Calls, organised by HORIZON CLOUD and NGIoT in collaboration with the European Commission (EC). The attendees had the opportunity to learn about the three Horizon Europe calls “Cognitive Cloud: AI-enabled computing continuum from Cloud to Edge (RIA)”, “Open source for cloud-based services (RIA)“, and “Programming tools for decentralised intelligence and swarms (RIA)”. Moreover, the event provided participants with a unique opportunity to brainstorm on emerging concepts, pitch concrete ideas, and exchange expertise with leading research organisations and cutting-edge innovators from across the industry.
The event kicked-off with a presentation of Rolf Riemenschneider, Head of Sector IoT, European Commission, introducing the European Data Strategy and the EU Research Agenda from Cloud to Edge to IoT. Then, Maria Tsakali, Programme Officer Cloud and Software Unit, European Commission, Luis Busquets Pérez, Programme Officer Cloud and Software Unit, European Commission, and Jan Komarek, Topic Coordinator IoT Unit, European Commission, presented the Cloud, Edge, IoT Horizon Europe 2022 Calls and gave useful tips regarding the scope and expectations of these calls. You can find their presentations here.
Hereafter, the following eight innovators pitched their project ideas and expertise to find potential proposal collaborators:
- Alberto P. Marti, OpenNebula
- Cagatay Yilmaz, Green Continuum Information Technologies Ltd.
- Tuna Tugcu, Bogazici University
- Tatiana Silva, Tree Technology
- Karthee Sivalingam, Huawei
