OVHcloud's Digital Sovereignty Roadshow


Digital Sovereignty Roadshow

How to assert European Digital Sovereignty

OVHcloud’s initiative to roll out a Digital Sovereignty Roadshow took place in the frame of the 2022 French Presidency of the European Union Council, which put the topic at the top of its agenda.

Over the course of this continent-wide public dialogue, OVHcloud’s primary objective was to generate productive debates around the definition and concepts of European Digital Sovereignty.

The second objective was to work on a pragmatic roadmap that shall enable Digital Sovereignty to take deep roots across the ecosystem.
Gathering key representatives across public institutions, technology leaders and trade associations, a much stronger commitment arose: Europe must take its digital destiny to the next level, building on four key pillars.

Europe is experiencing unique momentum and awareness in sowing the seeds of a European Digital Sovereignty. Its technological ecosystem is gaining maturity in all relevant sectors and cloud computing especially is becoming a decisive dimension of Digital Sovereignty.

The debates drew strongly on Estonia’s unique digital public service model, Spain’s humanist approach to a people-centric online life, Germany’s Industry 4.0 strategy, France’s French Tech movement and Italy’s digital strategy.

technological sovereignty.
