EuroCloud is an independent non-profit organisation and every European country can apply to participate. In less than three years, 30 countries have a EuroCloud presence and a local Eurocloud association is formally established in 21 European countries. The organisation is focused on creating awareness of Cloud Computing throughout society, taking an active role in the design of cloud industry processes and standards and building a pan-European contact and knowledge sharing network for companies that have interests in Cloud Computing, either as vendor/provider or facilitator/aggregator for the ecosystem as a whole.
