€6.5 million in Cloud and Earth Observation Funding Made Available for Researchers

24Jun2022

The EC-funded OCRE project has announced its new funding opportunity for researchers to take advantage of approximately €6.5 million (including VAT) for use on both Cloud and Earth Observation (EO) services.

For Cloud services, up to €500,000 and for EO, up to €200,000 can be requested per research project. The application process varies slightly for each service type (Cloud or EO). 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.

See the full requirements of the funding call and what is on offer. The deadline for the Cloud services funding is 7 July 2022 while the for EO it will be on 10 July 2022.
