EU - Towards a European Cloud Computing Strategy

Speech by Neelie Kroes Vice-President of the European Commission responsible for the Digital Agenda, World Economic Forum Davos, 27 January 2011. I want to make Europe not just "cloud-friendly" but "cloud-active". I will invite cloud providers and cloud users to Brussels for a series of intense consultations in the spring. Broadband for all – every European digital – is the Digital Agenda's ICT infrastructure policy. People often ask me what will be done with all that bandwidth. I am convinced that cloud computing is an important part of the answer. If you agree and want to help us to get it right, I am the woman to talk to.
