Gergely Fábián, Secretary of State for Industrial Policy and Technology, received the representatives of IPCEI-certified 4iG Nyrt. and E-Group ICT Software Zrt., namely László Blénessy, Deputy Group CEO at 4iG and Antal Kuthy, CEO of E-Group ICT Software.
As announced a few days ago, the European Commission had approved 19 cloud industry projects to receive IPCEI certification, including two Hungarian companies. The certification was earned thanks to the “Digital Trust Service” project of 4iG Nyrt. and the “FedEU.ai” project of E-Group ICT Sofware Zrt. The “Digital Trust Service” is a blockchain-based data authentication platform, while the “FedEU.ai” project addresses the global challenge of AI technology (security of mass data access and processing).
s (Important Projects of Common European Interest) are key strategic instruments with regard to the implementation of the European industrial strategy. These projects may represent a significant contribution to economic growth, jobs, the green and digital transition and competitiveness for the Union industry and economy. IPCEIs make it possible to bring together knowledge, expertise, financial resources, and economic actors throughout the EU and create positive spillover effects to the whole Union.
Gergely Fábián congratulated the two Hungarian companies. He stressed that “Hungary has been actively participating in the IPCEI process since 2020, under government coordination.” In June this year, a semiconductor ceramic wafer project in the field of microelectronics was given the opportunity to join the European ecosystem, but Hungary is also present in the cooperation in the field of hydrogen technology and in the health sector, he noted.
Now, the first two IPCEI-certified projects in the field of cloud infrastructure and services have been selected. The state is keen to support such ground-breaking projects based on modern technology and intends to continue to play a very active role in the development of the sector,”
the State Secretary said.
