C4DT Cloud Initiatives

The C4DT launches 3 different initiatives to promote and enable trustworthy and sovereign cloud computing. They build on C4DT’s Conference on Trustworthy and Sovereign Cloud Computing, which was held in September 2023 at the Starling Hotel in St.-Sulpice, and discussions with our partners and conference participants. Each initiative targets a different challenge:

  1. Knowledge and experience sharing through a series of seminars during which industry experts will share their practical experience and insights gained while working on a sovereign cloud-related project.
  2. Bringing multi-disciplinary stakeholders together to exchange and debate, often politically sensitive, in a neutral and confidential setting through technology & policy roundtables. 
  3. Identifying and showcasing sovereign-cloud-related research projects in Switzerland.
