Welcome to the online discussion platform for our workshop on broadband and cloud, two subjects which will unevitably continue to have a strong link in the development of the future internet. I am Jacek Starczewski, policy officer in the 'Software and Services, Cloud' unit in Directorate E ('Net Futures') of DG Communication Networks, Content and Technology. Together with my collegue Filippo Munisteri I will be your workshop leader at the DAA next June. I really think that interesting discussions will develop on this platform which we can hopefully discuss live together during the workshop in Dublin and, why not, find suitable conclusions for future developments. Looking forward to discuss with you!
