Brief description

Blue-Cloud aims to build and demonstrate the pilot Blue Cloud as a thematic EOSC cloud to support research for
understanding & better managing the many aspects of ocean sustainability, ranging from sustainable fisheries to
ecosystem health to pollution. The project seeks to bring together leading European marine data management
infrastructures, EOSC horizontal e-infrastructures, and selected marine researchers to capitalise on what exists
already and to develop and deploy the pilot Blue Cloud as a cyber platform bringing together and providing access
to 1) multidisciplinary data from observations and models, 2) analytical tools, and 3) computing facilities that are
essential for key blue science use cases. Those will demonstrate the potential of cloud based science, and also identify
the longer term challenges for wider deployment in technical, organizational, and financial sense. Together these will
provide the basis for a “Blue Cloud Evolution Roadmap” that might be implemented in the upcoming ‘HORIZON
EUROPE’ programme.
