Interested in procuring the cloud services developed by HNSciCloud? Join the Early Adopter Group!

In 2017, HNSciCloud consortium promoted the common hybrid science cloud platform currently under development to groups of research communities, organisations and ESFRI research infrastructures across Europe resulting in a number of requests from organisations wishing to join the procurement group.

This is why HNSciCloud is pleased to launch the Early Adopter Group with a view to widening the set of procurers.

Who can join the Early Adopter Group?

The Early Adopter Group will be made of research organisations wishing to become procurers for the resulting HNSciCloud services, and wishing to take advantage of all of the benefits related to joint procurement when compared to performing cloud service evaluations and procurements independently.

The HNSciCloud project will work with the service providers contracted via the PCP tender process to propose a mechanism by which members of the Early adopter group can procure the innovative cloud services in parallel with the HNSciCloud pilot phase.

The Early Adopter Group rules of engagement will be presented during the webcast event taking place on the 6th of February 2018 “Launching the Helix Nebula Science Cloud Pilot Phase”.
