Helix Nebula @ CloudSigma: Future Internet Assembly conference, Dublin, 08-10 May 2013

CloudSigma participated at the Future Internet Assembly conference in Dublin on 08-10 May 2013.
FIA Dublin focuses on how European Future Internet research and innovation support EU's competitiveness and enable a new wave of technologies at the eve of Horizon 2020.
FIA Dublin is framed around two major lines:
•    European competitiveness: towards a strong, diversified and competitive EU Future Internet industrial base, with high innovation performance in global markets
•    European research & innovation: towards a more effective exploitation of EU Future Internet research results from industry, academia and research institutes.
Cloudsigma mentioned Helix Nebula as an example of how projects should be funded in the EU / EC namely that they should be demand driven and funds granted to the consumers, rather than the supply side.


Helix Nebula is a new, pioneering partnership between leading IT providers and four of Europe’s biggest research centres, CERN, EMBL, ESA and PIC, charting a course towards sustainable cloud services for the research communities - the Science Cloud.
