Pre-commercial procurement of innovative open cloud services
Large scale scientific projects in fields like genome analysis, astrophysics, life science and photon science rely on global collaboration. This requires huge amounts of data storage and analysis tools which meet the specific needs of the science and research community. A group of ten public research organisations from 7 Euroepan countries – headed by CERN, the European Organisation for Nuclear Research - joined forces in a Pre-Commercial Procurement (PCP) project, which aimed to design a cloud-based system specifically for science and research.

This PCP was cofounded by the European Commission’s H2020 Framework Programme via the Helix Nebula Science Cloud project. In recognition of its outstanding use of PCP, CERN was also awarded the 2019 Procura+ Outstanding Innovation Procurement in ICT Award, which is supported by the EU-funded Procure2Innovate project.
