Digital and Data Sovereignty

The joint announcement by Bruno le Maire and Peter Altmeier, on 4 June 2020, concerning the official launch of the Gaia-X initiative has relaunched one of the flagship projects of digital sovereignty in Europe. This initiative falls under the European “sovereign cloud” project that is put forward by the European Commission, within its European Strategy for Data and the announcement of the forthcoming Data Governance Act.
The Digital, Governance and Sovereignty Chair offers you this thematic dossier in order to better understand the European “sovereign cloud” dynamic as well as how the French cloud computing strategy has evolved over the last decade.
