Cooperation Mechanisms

The EUCloudEdgeIoT.eu initiative offers a set of cooperation mechanisms with the community of research projects in the Cloud, Edge, IoT and related domains in the form of six individual task forces.
The aim of these task forces is to assist in the coordination and dissemination with stakeholders from the Cloud, Edge and IoT ecosystems, such as research projects, coordination projects, the European Commission, and other organisations. The EUCloudEdgeIoT.eu task forces avoid overlap of work between projects, enable project amplification, and allow the identification of potential areas of collaboration and conflict.
Acting as a multiplier, the goal of EUCloudEdgeIoT Task Forces is also to create common strategies, approaches and methodologies to areas of interest within the CEI Ecosystem, and to increase the visibility of the Cloud, Edge and IoT continuum towards the development of the community. Each TF targets specific types of projects and stakeholders
Check below the details of our task forces. If you are interested in learning more, contact info@eucloudedgeiot.eu.
