Helix Nebula – The Science Cloud: A catalyst for change in Europe
Helix Nebula – the Science Cloud ‐ is the catalyst for major changes in the way the European research community uses IT services, including a self‐financing Public‐Private Partnership (PPP) for cloud services. It addresses a key strategic interest for the European economy; to ensure accessible, sustainable, competitive and secure infrastructure, not only for the scientific community but throughout industry and society. This document analyses and explains acceleration themes that will have direct impact on our ability to build a flourishing open cloud services market in Europe, and proposes a coherent and consistent set of concrete actions towards that goal.
HELIX NEBULA PARTNERSHIP
Helix Nebula is a new, pioneering partnership between leading IT providers and four of Europe’s biggest research centres, CERN, EMBL, ESA and PIC, charting a course towards sustainable cloud services for the research communities - the Science Cloud.
