BIG SCIENCE TEAMS UP WITH BIG BUSINESS

Helix Nebula is a new, pioneering partnership between big science and big business in Europe that is charting the course towards the sustainable provision of cloud computing - the Science Cloud.

Towards the European Open Science Cloud

CERN has recently published a paper which outlines the establishment of the European Open Science Cloud that will enable digital science by introducing IT as a Service to the public research sector in Europe.
On the 23rd of April 2015, Bob Jones, CERN & HNI Co-Coordinator, was invited by the European Commission to present the ‘European Open Science Cloud’ at the 3rd Digital European Research Area (ERA) Forum meeting. The concept of open science and a European open science cloud seems to be widely accepted, but how to implement it remains largely unknown and Helix Nebula and the European Science cloud are examples that can be used to define the future structure...
