The Future of a EuroGeoCloud

Okay, I’m disappointed.

Despite 17 consortiums bidding for the recent “Cloud of public services” call from the EC, I was sure ours would secure the funding.  We proposed a cloud of cached mapping agency data from across Europe, proposed a new architecture, lined up an innovation programme to attract the neo-geographers and social activists and enlisted 6 commercial organisations to incorporate this new cloud resource into their existing services.  It seemed a great use of the available funding.

Still we have a great proposition here, there will be more funding and we have a stunning consortium.  How do we get it off the ground?   It seems like most of the ingreedients are already here…
