Business Models and Procurement

The Business Models and Procurement session contributes to EOSC-hub and its upcoming report on business model analysis for procuring services in the EOSC.

The goal was to present learning from large-scale procurement activities that deliver services of interest under EOSC.

The purpose of the report is to investigate potential mechanisms for researchers to access the results of procured services free at the point of use, illustrated by real-life case studies from the perspective of three stakeholder groups and focusing on public sector users, identifying challenges from lessons learned and to inform the Sustainability WG on key learning points as the legal entity develops the future operating model of EOSC.

The final version of this report is expected by October 2020 (EOSC-hub Deliverable D12.2).


A poster on OCRE and its IaaS+ Tender was also showcased and provided an overview on the ongoing tender.
