Within the framework of an important project of common European interest (IPCEI), the Ministry of the Economy is launching a call to economic operators wishing to participate in the development of next-generation cloud infrastructures and services.

The call is aimed at economic players operating in the infrastructure and cloud services value chain.

The objective of this IPCEI is

  • to efficiently promote European leadership in data and digital sovereignty,
  • to contribute to a stronger and sustainable economic competitiveness within the European Union and
  • to support the development of intelligent, highly innovative, interoperable, secure, energy-efficient and privacy-friendly cloud and edge cloud solutions.

The need to invest strategically in the next generation of cloud infrastructure and services is a strategic commitment of the European Union which is actively supported by Luxembourg. Several member states, including the Grand Duchy, are now working together to provide a coordinated industrial response.

Details of the call for expressions of interest are available here. Interested applicants should submit by Friday 16 April 2021 a short Word document (maximum two pages) expressing their interest in the value chain, their specific area of interest among the 8 topics detailed in the call for expression of interest, as well as a brief overview of their potential industrial project and contribution.
