The potential for innovation and growth that cloud computing represents was a key factor in the Commission's thinking in preparing the Digital Single Market strategy. We are starting to prepare a European Cloud initiative, which will address a number of important issues to provide trust and confidence and to enhance cloud take-up, as well as another action ensuring the free-flow of data. To get these measures right, and to ensure that we let cloud providers and cloud service users give their input to this work, we will engage in a comprehensive and transparent consultation process over the coming months.

We need to continue doing more research in this field also beyond 2015. This is why the European Commission seeks everyone's opinion, especially from researchers, scientists and developers, on priorities for this research.
