All eyes on Belém (Brazil), as EU-Brazil cooperation in ICT takes centre stage at Cloudscape Brazil 2019, charting a course for future research and innovation on Cloud Computing and related ICT topics, while demonstrating how Cloud continues to shape the future of technology, along with Artificial Intelligence (AI), Internet of Things (IoT), Edge Computing and other key enablers.

ATMOSPHERE project published five use-cases on trustworthy cloud applications, demonstrating how ATMOSPHERE results are supporting cloud adoption and bring innovation with positive impact into businesses and citizens’ life.

Cloud computing and its solutions have enjoyed wide popularity and acceptance throughout different industries and applications. Despite this, there are still doubts on the suitability of cloud for various reasons. 

Brazil is the leading economy in South America, representing the 8th largest economy in the world. The EU is its main trading partner and foreign direct investor. The relationship between Brazil and the EU on research and innovation is governed by the Agreement for Scientific and Technological Cooperation signed in 2004.

European & Brazilians together to shape ICT Cooperations

It’s the ambition to shape cloud developments in both Brazil and Europe by bringing insights into current market trends, challenges slowing down mainstream adoption of cloud services and best practices to address them.

European and Brazilian Research Innovation Action cloud computing project ATMOSPHERE (Adaptive, Trustworthy, Manageable, Orchestrated, Secure Privacy-assuring Hybrid, Ecosystem for REsilient Cloud Computing), presented a new framework that increases the privacy protection of anonymized information manipulated by data analytics platforms at the EDCC 2018 (European Dependable Computing Conference) last September in Romania.

ATMOSPHERE was invited by RNP to showcase the projects goals and work at Forum RNP 2018 and in the RNP webinar “ICT Cooperation on Cloud Computing” (Cooperação TIC sobre computação em nuvem). 

As one of the key projects under the 4th EU-Brazil Coordinated Call of joint research projects and as the custodian of the EUBrazilCloudForum's legacy of organising the biannual Cloudscape Brazil conference, ATMOSPHERE is at the heart of European-Brazilian science diplomacy initiatives.

European-Brazilian cloud project ATMOSPHERE will be featured next week at the Digital Infrastructures for Research 2018 (DI4R 2018) in Lisbon, Portugal.
