NF_logoNexusForum.EU is a Horizon Europe Coordination and Support Action project funded by the European Commission. The 30 months project officially started in January 2024.

The NexusForum.EU project will boost the consolidation of the European Computing Continuum ecosystem building on the valuable activities and impact generated so far by within the existing EUCloudEdgeIoT ecosystem, as well as will provide a forward-looking and bold vision in new areas and directions that have not been explored so far.

NexusForum.EU will :

  • Deliver a strategic outlook on the Cognitive Computing Continuum future, effectively combining the vision, priorities, and advancements by the IPCEI-CIS and the European Alliance for Industrial Data, Edge, and Cloud.
  • Produce annual research & innovation roadmaps & policy recommendations in key strategic areas, incorporating a forecast analysis on the long-term economic, social, and ethical implications that new EU digital policies might have, identifying gaps, opportunities, and international synergies.
  • Nurture the European computing constituency, incorporating investors, market leaders, and users from different sectors—especially SMEs, start-ups, university spin-offs, and social economy companies.
  • Engage research and industry ecosystems and relevant initiatives in non-EU strategic democratic countries —with a special focus on Japan and South Korea as highly valuable (soon-to-be) Horizon Europe associated countries.

The consortium is powered by 7 partners, coordinated by RISE in cooperation with OpenNebula, Tecnalia, F6S, Martel, Meiji University (Japan) and Yonsei University (South Korea).
