Meta-operating systems projects: Key solutions, open calls and use cases


The European Cloud, Edge & IoT Continuum ( aims to realise a pathway for the understanding and development of the Cloud-Edge-IoT (CEI) Continuum by promoting cooperation between a wide range of research projects, developers and suppliers, business users and potential adopters of this new technological paradigm.

To achieve these goals, the EUCloudEdgeIoT initiative coordinates a diverse portfolio of project clusters with different specialisations. These are:

  • Cloud Computing: towards a smart cloud computing continuum (ICT40-2020)
  • Software Technologies (ICT-50-2020)
  • Next Generation Internet of Things (ICT-56-2020)
  • Future European platforms for the Edge: Meta Operating Systems (HORIZON-CL4-2021-DATA-01-05)
  • Cognitive Cloud: AI-enabled computing continuum from Cloud to Edge (HORIZON-CL4-2022-DATA-01-02)
  • Programming tools for decentralised intelligence and swarms (HORIZON-CL4-2022- DATA-01-03)
  • Open source for cloud-based services (HORIZON-CL4-2022-DIGITAL-EMERGING-01-26)

This booklet focuses specifically on the MetaOS portfolio, providing insights on relevant use cases under development and open call opportunities. For more information on the wider initiative, or on other portfolios, please see our Research Community Booklet.
