Lecture Information 

Name - Building the European Open Science Cloud: Procuring cloud services in public research organisations


The European Commission has committed to establish an Open Science Cloud starting in 2016 for European researchers and their global scientific collaborators by integrating and consolidating e-infrastructure platforms, federating existing scientific clouds and research infrastructures, and supporting the development of cloud-based services.
Building on experience of Helix Nebula, PICSE and HNSciCloud projects, this presentation will explore the essential characteristics of a European Open Science Cloud with focus on innovative procurement of cloud services for research organisations.
This area is of key relevance for JRC role in support of the multidisciplinary European Data Infrastructure for the European Open Science Cloud.
