OCRE project

The URAN Association is a participant in the OCRE (Open Clouds for Research Environments) project. The project is designed to facilitate access for scientists and educators to European cloud services.

OCRE is funded by the European Union and acts as an intermediary between commercial cloud service providers and their consumers – scientific and educational institutions; it helps them to establish contracts (framework agreements) and obtain significant discounts.

This saves consumers money and time because OCRE takes on the complex process of procuring cloud services on behalf of scientific and educational institutions: it seeks providers, conducts a pan-European tender, and negotiates framework agreements specifically tailored to the requirements of each institution. Among the cloud service providers available through OCRE are Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services (AWS).

Ukrainian R&E institutions can access OCRE services through the URAN Association. To do this, please contact us at dopomoga@uran.ua or call us at +380 44 204-9815.
