Title: Effective collaboration for European RD and Innovation in software, services and Cloud computing: Knowledge discovery and Roadmapping
Acronym: HOLA CLOUD
HOLA CLOUD targeted to establish effective mechanisms for efficient collaboration among the members of the software, services and Cloud computing community building on a decade of experiences acquired by people who are themselves core members of this community, and extended this collaboration to stakeholders who can turn the community knowledge into sustainable economic growth. Through a completely new take on scientific collaborations, researchers in the field have been given the opportunity not only to present their results, but also have been pushed to look into the future. The resulting scientific roadmap has been alloyed by database tools at the forefront of technology with federated results from past and present projects and social media into extended, searchable knowledge synthesising what Europe knows, and who knows it. This enabled companies, governments, and politicians to discover best practice solutions to their problems, and to identify future challenges that must be addressed to move European software intensive industries forward.
HOLA CLOUD initiated an advanced conference series producing and revising an annual technology roadmap and providing an efficient venue for the members of the community to meet and exchange results and ideas for the future. To lower the barriers for industrial take-up, in particular with SMEs, HOLA CLOUD organised an SME Event for companies to understand better how to create solutions to their problems together with the best European experts in the field. These events were overarched by an advanced on-line knowledge platform ensuring the persistent access to information for all stakeholders. All the HOLA CLOUD activities and results have been promoted and supported by an efficient communication strategy involving an audience way beyond the normal constituency of the software, services and cloud computing domain with the aim to establish a European Cloud based eco-system that still endures after the end of the project.
DKMS Role: participant
Development of the HOLA CLOUD platform added value services, including detection and analysis of research trends in the Cloud domain and dynamic researchers’ collaboration based on non-declared, semantically-inferred relationships.
