Smarter EU Public AdministrationsCloud computing is used to describe a variety of different types of computing concepts in an elastic execution environment allowing network access on request to a shared set of configurable computing resources (e.g. networks, servers, storage devices, applications and services) based on interoperability.
This type of resource has been taken into consideration in the European e-government Plan of Action 2011-2015 and in the European Digital Agenda 2010 as the most economical mean to ensure quality to e-government services.
This project aims to improve the use of ICT, particularly cloud computing and required competences, in European public administrations. As a final objective it has to support interoperability, efficiency and flexibility in relations with European citizen and their complex requirements.
