European Cloud Computing Strategy (ECCS)

Contributor(s): Fernanda Aspe

The European Cloud Computing Strategy (ECCS) is an initiative established by the European Commission to promote the adoption of cloud computing services.  The strategy focuses on three key areas: the development of EU-wide voluntary certification schemes, the development of model contract terms to cover issues not covered by the Common European Sales Law and the creation of a European Cloud Partnership that will drive innovation and growth from the public sector. The European Cloud Computing Strategy's objective is to create 3.8 million new jobs and help the cumulative gross domestic product reach 957 billion euros by 2020, within the 27 E.U. members that have chosen to implement the strategy.
