OCRE - Open Clouds for Research Environment

The Open Cloud for Research Environments project (OCRE) is a Horizon 2020 project, will run from January 1, 2019 until December 31, 2021, to accelerate usage of commercial cloud services by the European research community.

Essential for interdisciplinary research, these services include:

  • Commodity type commercial digital services, such as:

    • Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS), providing compute, storage, network and related services, and a platform allowing customers to develop, run, and manage applications as a public cloud service.

    • Software as a Service (SaaS), an on-demand software licensing and delivery model in which software is used by the customer on a subscription basis and is hosted by the supplier as a public cloud service. File storage (sync and share), online collaboration, simulation and virtualisation tools are example services.

  • Secure Earth Observation commercial services, which make use of the Copernicus Data and Information Access Services (DIAS).

OCRE brings together cloud providers, Earth Observation (EO) companies and the European research community, through:

• a pan-European tender resulting in ready-to-use service agreements available to 10,000 institutions.

• a cloud delivery program, including €9.5 million in adoption funding for research.

• a management platform to track uptake and manage vouchers

Electronic communication networks and interconnected digital services have become ubiquitous as they have permeated every fold of everyday life. At a time when automated profiling and electronic surveillance have become commodities, citizens and businesses alike may face limitations and threats when they have personal data processed or seek to protect their privacy on the internet or when using general communication services. Limitations in the transparency, the functionality and interconnectivity of online and communication services increases the risk of having personal data processed out of control of any accountable person or organization or simply becoming exposed to all sorts of privacy threats.

Future Events

The CYBERSEC2019 will be held on 29-30 October 2019 in Katowice, Poland. This is a public policy conference dedicated to strategic security aspects of the global technology revolution and a thriving inter-national community that combines the knowledge and experience of experts and professionals.
