Helix Nebula Marketplace Catalogue

This document is prepared as part of the launch of the Helix Nebula Marketplace (HNX), in which a number of suppliers seek to offer their services, in a competitive but compatible manner, primarily to European research organisations.

Those suppliers must adhere to the Anti-Trust Guidelines (ATGs) as defined within Helix Nebula, thus not acting as a cartel. Therefore this document should not be seen as defining or restricting the services offered by any one supplier. Rather, it serves to ease the discovery and selection process by the potential customers of the services, by describing a mechanism which provides an indication of the range of services which may be available in common between those suppliers, as chosen by each supplier themselves. It is entirely up to each supplier as to how much and what information they include.

The document includes the following sections:

  • A general outline of the Helix Nebula services;
  • An outline of the nature of the catalogue;
  • An outline of the initially-expected elements within the catalogue;
  • Some indication of possible relevant future developments.
