OCRE Project Webinar: Procurement and Funding Updates

Do you want to learn about the latest OCRE Project developments, including our Earth Observation catalogue, the funding distribution opportunities and the OCRE Cloud Framework for commercial cloud procurement services?

The EU-funded OCRE project will be hosting a free webinar on 14 April to provide an update on the status of the European Commission project, and to describe a significant opportunity for research projects who wish to consume funded cloud based digital services in support of their research activities and outcomes.

The final adoption funding call, due to be published in late April, will require that researchers collaborate with local OCRE suppliers of commercial cloud services on compelling proposals. The OCRE project encourages research institutes to identify participating suppliers using the OCRE cloud catalogue, and to reach out to those most likely to suit their individual needs with details of eligible projects.

The call will be open for approximately two months.


Who should attend

The webinar is open to all, but the following are highly encouraged to attend, particularly:
• Researchers, research institutions, and national research and education networks (NREN)
• Cloud service providers
• EO companies
• Actors in the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) community
