The Dutch government is contributing 70 million euros to the development of cloud innovations with the Important Project of Common European Interest (IPCEI), and the European Commission has approved various initiatives from 13 Dutch companies and knowledge institutions.
In addition to driving innovation and addressing market disruption, the IPCEI is driving new data-driven business models. Asperitas is honoured to be awarded this prestigious support alongside the likes of Leaseweb Global, TNO, AMS-IX in order to collectively focus our innovations on aspects such as sustainability, cyber security and flexibility of new cloud services and infrastructure such as decentralized datacentres.
Minister Micky Adriaansens (Economic Affairs and Climate): “A large majority of companies indicate that they need an innovative European solution for cloud and other data applications. This does not exist now, because the market is in the hands of mainly non-European companies where different principles apply to sharing, processing and access to data. The high-tech manufacturing industry as a whole must be able to fully apply digitalization in their processes, services and products to remain globally competitive. That is why it is good that we are now taking concrete action on this.”
