The European Data Centre Association (EUDCA) represents the interests of the European commercial data centre operator community.

Established in 2011, the association is registered under Belgian Royal Charter and is run by its members, for its members.

Membership is open to all commercial data centre operators with a presence in Europe as well as vendors, consultants and other interested parties. We maintain a strict member base ratio of 70 operators to 30 vendors / manufacturers in order to ensure that our policies and initiatives are always operator focused. Whether you are a large pan-European operator, or a smaller in-country provider, the EUDCA offers a multitude of opportunities to expand your customer base or to become involved in political decision making.


To provide a platform for European data centre operators, both commercially and politically, with the overall aim of promoting and developing growth for the industry


The European Data Centre Association is an International non-profit organisation registered in Belgium under BE0847628857. It is governed by a Association Board that consists of 12 members, all of whom represent the industry in some way. The Board of Directors oversees the Association and its work, as its ultimate authority.

The Executive Board is responsible for the day-to-day operations of the European Data Centre Association. Admission of new participants is processed by the Foundation Board and is based on the guidelines of the European Data Centre Association.

In June 2021 a new Board of Directors was elected at the General Assembly. A new Chairman, Michael Winterson, was elected who will guide the association through the evolution of the industry as it strives to become carbon neutral by 2030.
