The European Commission adopted the Cloud Computing Strategy in 2012 in order to speed up and increase the use of cloud computing across all economic sector. The Strategy sets out the following three key actions:
1. Safe and fair contract terms and conditions;
2. Cutting through the jungle of standards;
3. Establishing a European cloud partnership.
The Strategy represents a political commitment of the European Commission and calls on all stakeholders to participate in the implementation of the above-mentioned actions.
