It’s been an exciting week so far at the Flexiant camp, following an official visit from Angela Constance MSP, Fergus Ewing (Minister for Energy, Enterprise and Tourism) and Alyn Smith (MEP). They paid us a visit on Monday to hear more about the three EU funded projects we are involved in, which together are valued at 20 million euros.
To give you a bit of background information, these projects are part of the EU’s Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) for research and technological development. In 2010, our cutting edge cloud platform Extility was selected to be used as a test bed by three of these pan-European projects, and ever since then we have been working in close partnership with Europe’s leading experts in cloud computing to deliver them. Our partners include ATOS Origin, SAP, British Telecom, Telefonica and Orange.
