Europe’s Leading Public-Private Partnership for Cloud

The Helix Nebula Initiative is a partnership between industry, space and science to establish a dynamic ecosystem, benefiting from open cloud services for the seamless integration of science into a business environment. Today, the partnership counts over 40 public and private partners.

Cloud computing, innovation and open science were the keywords at the Open Day Event: Towards the European Open Science Cloud (20 January 2016).

Over 80 experts from European research organisations, public & private commercial cloud service providers gathered at CERN on 26 June 2015 for the Helix Nebula Initiative (HNI) and PICSE Open Day event: Towards a European Open Science Cloud, which demonstrated why and how Europe can enable digital science by introducing IT as a Service for its public research community. Rolf Heuer, Director General of CERN, indicated that the Open Science Cloud is driven by a hybrid model comprising public research organisations, e-Infrastructures and commercial suppliers to build a common platform with a range of services for Europe’s research communities. Currently in its fourth year
of activity, HNI...

Along with other European generators of big science, the European Space Agency (ESA) and European Molecular Biology Lab (EMBL), CERN participated for a number of years in a European Commission-funded..

Earlier this year, the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) published a paper proposing the establishment of a European Open Science Cloud that will enable digital science by introducing ‘IT as a service’ to the public research sector in Europe. This paper calls for a hybrid model that brings together public research organizations and e‐infrastructures with commercial suppliers to build a common platform that offers a range of services to Europe’s research communities.

Leaked copies of the upcoming Digital Single Market Strategy and its supporting Evidence file show the European Commission is ready to propose vast regulatory reforms that could affect everything from sales taxes and e-privacy to Internet searches and big data.

Over 50 managers, cloud providers, policy makers, procurers and researchers dealing with the adoption of cloud computing gathered recently for the workshop “Enabling a Dynamic Cloud Ecosystem". The event was hosted by the European Space Agency, ESA ESRIN in Frascati, Italy and organized by the Helix Nebula Initiative - HNI (www.helix-nebula.eu) and the newly-launched project, Procurement Innovation for Cloud Services in Europe - PICSE (www.picse.eu), both supporting the uptake of cloud computing in Europe.
