For the second year, AWS hosted our AWS Public Sector Summit in Brussels, Belgium, on Tuesday, April 9. This year, we welcomed over 700 attendees from across the European Union. The Summit focused on key public sector themes across the region including training and workforce development, migration and transformation, data privacy and security, and machine learning and artificial intelligence.
Last week, we held our first-ever AWS Public Sector Summit in Europe. Customers from over 40 countries traveled to Brussels to hear from leaders across the public sector about how they use the cloud to build a digital generation. Teresa Carlson, VP of Worldwide Public Sector at AWS, delivered a keynote highlighting how public sector organizations are taking on the role of “builders” on behalf of their citizens. Santillana, European Commission, and Skinvision took the stage to share how they are creating new citizen services, improving the delivery and performance of existing programs, and making data-driven decisions.
Today at the AWS Public Sector Summit in Brussels, we announced that AWS EdStart, a program that is designed to help startup educational technology (EdTech) companies build teaching and learning solutions on the AWS Cloud, is now available in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa.
