D2.1 Communication Plan

‘Helix Nebula – the science cloud’, has been established to support the massive IT requirements of European scientists and create a cloud computing market for the public sector in Europe. Collaboration between big science and big business, Helix Nebula joins the forces of leading IT providers and three of Europe’s biggest research centers. The initiative strongly supports the Commission’s Digital Agenda for Europe: It stresses a unified approach to data protection regulations and lightweight, efficient governance; it also has ambitions to support European economic development by making its services available to the wider community. This document, the Communication and Dissemination Plan, defines the overall Helix Nebula communication and dissemination strategy.


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.
