D6.1 Best Practices Report
This document outlines how the second part of the pilot phase of the HNSciCloud Pre-Commercial Procurement project has been organized. A set of dissemination and marketing activities to report the current status of the pilot services and promote their uptake in the scientific and business worlds have been also reported. Before the end of the project, several iterations between the procurers and contractors were necessary to develop accurate and meaningful TCO results to better determine the direct and indirect costs for supporting the PanCancer and the Alice reconstruction and analysis trains use cases. Additional lessons were learned during this phase based on the feedback retrieved from the Buyers Group. The document concludes with a set of recommendations and suggestions for possible future projects.
