IPCEI Qualification for the E-Group FedEU.ai Project

The Commission has approved, under EU State aid rules, an Important Project of Common European Interest (‘IPCEI’) to support research, development and first industrial deployment of advanced cloud and edge computing technologies across multiple providers in Europe.

The project, called IPCEI Next Generation Cloud Infrastructure and Services (IPCEI CIS), was jointly notified by seven Member States: France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, and Spain.

As part of this crucial project serving a common European interest, 19 enterprises – including small and medium-sized businesses – will execute 19 exceptionally innovative projects. Among these is the E-Group’s ‘FedEU.ai’ project, which aims to address the global challenge of AI technology – ensuring the security of massive data access and processing.


IPCEI CIS is the first IPCEI in the cloud and edge computing domain. It concerns the development of the first interoperable and openly accessible European data processing ecosystem, the multi-provider cloud to edge continuum. It will develop data processing capabilities, and software and data sharing tools that enable federated, energy-efficient and trustworthy cloud and edge distributed data processing technologies and related services. The innovation provided by IPCEI CIS will enable a new spectrum of possibilities for European businesses and citizens, advancing the Digital and Green transition in Europe.
