Expressions of Interest for Work Programme 2025-2027

Under Horizon Europe’s Cluster 4, the European Commission supports a new strategy on the next generation of Cloud-Edge-IoT continuum with more intelligence and autonomy at the edge. R&I investments under WP2020-23 focused on establishing a baseline technology and emerging system concepts based on the cloud-edge computing paradigms by building on relevant elements of computing, connectivity, IoT, AI and cybersecurity. Further R&I is devoted to the development of a Cognitive Cloud-Edge Computing Continuum, as a hyper-distributed computing approach that exploits AI techniques to advance automation and dynamic adaptation of resource management across IoT devices and Edge and Cloud computing models. But what comes next beyond 2025?

DG CONNECT launched an expression of interest to contribute to and invited everyone who wished to express their visionary perspectives on the future of the European research and innovation programmes 2025-2027 under the above areas, looking at new ways for managing the Cloud to Edge continuum, capturing new trends like from MetaOS towards MetaWeb, for industrial IoT towards a Metaverse@theEdge, for radically new Software Engineering Challenges or related big game changers.

It should help to guide the Commission on future disruptive trends, radically new vision and emerging game changers for the Cloud-Edge-IoT research domain and help structuring our future R&I policy for the work programme 2025-27.

Selected EoIs were presented at the Consultation on “Computing Continuum: From Cloud to Edge to IoT”.

The submitted expressions of interest can be found below, per topic.
