Deliverable D9.2: Market Analysis for Virtual Organisation Platform as a Service (VOPaaS)​​

Scientific research is at the heart of every European University. Nowadays, such research is no longer an isolate​​d activity, but has evolved into extensive collaboration between networks of researchers in multiple countries. Virtual Organisations (VOs) have emerged as the organisational form of these networks of people and resources.

​The GÉANT Proj​​ect

The project is co-funded by Europe's NRENs and the EU. 


As part of the GÉANT 2020 Framework Partnership Agreement (FPA), the project receives funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under Grant Agreement No. 731122 (GN4-2).​​​
