In light of the strategic directions undertaken by the European Commission to foster closer collaborative ties between Europe and Japan, the EC has recently funded SUCRE - SUpporting Cloud Research Exploitation. This project offers a series of on-line and off-line tools as well as instruments to help facilitate networking opportunities among key cloud and open source R&D players from the two regions. The project's international consortium is made up of industrial and research partners from Greece, Italy, UK, Japan, Poland and Germany.

Thanks to its team composition and participating commercial partners, SUCRE is in position to encourage and help foster the involvement of industrial Japanese players in the EC Work Programme as well as in its new Horizon 2020 framework programme. 

SUCRE will also help involve Japanese counterparts in the EU ICT economy by inviting them to actively participate in its networking events such as the EU-Japan workshop, by facilitating the on-going official dialog and by disseminating selected ongoing Japanese cloud and open-source R&D efforts in SUCRE’s magazine. The aforementioned magazine will  be issued twice a year for a total of four issues and will showcase and widely disseminate the results of research and development activities that are currently taking place in Europe and Japan with regards cloud computing and open source.

One of the magazine's major objectives is to voice the EU related funded projects’ results and spread the word about their achievements outside Europe, as well as to be a channel for stories from outside of the EU.

CLOUT_logo.pngThe ClouT project is jointly funded by the European Community's Seventh Framework Programme and by the National Institute of Information and Communications Technology of Japan.ClouT’s overall concept is leveraging the Cloud Computing as an enabler to bridge the Internet of Things with Internet of People via Internet of Services, to establish an efficient communication and collaboration platform exploiting all possible information sources to make the cities smarter and to help them facing the emerging challenges such as efficient energy management, economic growth and development. The overall ClouT consortium is made of 13 partners, 6 from 3 different European countries and 7 from Japan of which: 2 research centers, 2 universities, 5 large industrials and 4 cities.

OCEAN, ClouT and SUCRE Projects involved in EU-Japan Cloud Research


The three collaborative projects co-organized a workshop dedicated to Cloud Computing research with main objectives to identify the topics for future Cloud Computing research, to include in the next collaborative EU-Japan research program for 2016-2017.

The target audience of the workshops are researchers and R&D project managers. More information and photos here.
