2 November 2016: Helix Nebula Science Cloud awards Design Phase contracts to four consortia
On the 2nd November 2016, the awards ceremony for the successful bidders of the Helix Nebula Science Cloud tender (www.hnscicloud.eu) is taking place in Lyon, France, at the CC-IN2P3 (CNRS) premises, one of the main academic data centres in France and a procurer of the Helix Nebula Science Cloud (HNSciCloud).

This €5.3 million joint Pre-Commercial Procurement (PCP) tender, led by CERN, will establish a European hybrid cloud platform that will support high-performance, data-intensive scientific use-cases sponsored by 10 of Europe’s leading public research organisations and co-funded by the European Commission.

A total of 28 multinational companies, SMEs and public research organisations from 12 countries submitted bids during the summer. The 4 selected consortia will be announced at the event and present their visions for the hybrid cloud platform.

This event marks the conclusion of the preparation of the pre-commercial procurement and will kick off the design phase where the four consortia compete to go through to the prototyping phase.

The webcast of the event will be available at www.hnscicloud.eu.

Join us on Wednesday 2nd November, 2016, at 2.30pm CET (#HNtenderawards)
