    In 2013, the European Commission has launched consultations on the exploitation of cloud computing to support the European Single Market [10]. The EC communications illustrate the vision of the European Commission to build the Trusted Cloud Computing Europe in the next future.

    This project aims at understanding what are the major pillars of the European Commission's strategy and evaluating the EC regulatory framework that is under definition and its effects on the public and private sector with specific attention to South Tyrolean situation.

    Feedback from the field will be used to understand the development and the implementation limits of such strategy in the provincial, national and European context.

    External experts will help to interpret the data collected. The final result of the project will map the current cloud computing services within the legal framework in which they operate and define a set of future scenarios and driving forces triggering possible future evolutions of the use of such technology and the regulatory framework for the European Single Market and Digital Agenda.
