News: New OCRE Call for Funding Launched

New OCRE Call for Funding Launched

The EC-funded OCRE (Open Clouds for Research Environments) project has a remaining budget of approximately €6.5 million (including VAT), intended to be distributed across both Cloud and Earth Observation services.

The OCRE project will procure services on behalf of awarded research projects in accordance with the rules governed by its Grant Agreement with the European Commission. In addition to this, OCRE is restricted by the rules associated with the procurement of single purpose vouchers and VAT compliance within the European Union. This unfortunately prevents OCRE from applying the proven funding mechanism outside of the EU and UK.

Institutes outside of this region (including from the Republic of Moldova) are able to consume awarded services for project collaborations with institutes inside the EU. If you are working within such a research collaboration, please encourage your counterparts in the EU to assist with the submission of a compelling proposal. Research projects spanning more than one country have a good chance of being awarded digital services through OCRE.

Get your research project’s services funded! The call will close on July 7, 2022 – act now!
