This report summarises the main highlights of the first webinar of The European Cloud, Edge & IoT Continuum, organised by UNLOCK CEI.

Through the Cloud, Edge & IoT Continuum, Europe has a unique opportunity to regain a significant role in the computing market and retain digital autonomy. 

Cloud, Edge and IoT technologies are critical for Europe’s future. Due to the amount of data generated and the quick responses required, many companies’ IoT use cases for the next few years will leverage IoT and require both Cloud and Edge technologies. Many of these use cases bridge Cloud and Edge, and the three technologies already blend in several instances,  impacting different domains - from energy infrastructures to national security to healthcare and economics in larger terms. Finally, these technologies also play an essential role in achieving sustainability goals. However, despite widespread adoption, IoT and Edge technologies are still in their very early application stages among companies and specific needs and requirements of possible adopters and demand side representative still have to be fully understood .
As to the supply side, Cloud-Edge-IoT creates a wide range of opportunities for different companies by also  incorporating many other enabling technologies. However, because this is still a relatively fragmented market with no dominant player, EU policies can influence its future shape.
