The research community booklet


The European Cloud, Edge & IoT Continuum ( aims to realise a pathway for the understanding and development of the 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.

The project contributes to the coordination of a portfolio of research projects in the CEI Computing Continuum funded under:

  • 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)

These will also benefit from the synergies and legacy of other existing EU projects in the domains of Cloud, Edge, IoT, AI, and connectivity, including, among others, NGIoT, SW Forum and H-Cloud, as well as companies and startups such as Axelera AI.
