Google Cloud Compute and OCRE

As part of our commitment to supporting pioneering research globally, Google Cloud is proud to announce that its services are now available to participants in the OCRE (Open Clouds for Research Environment) framework. Co-founded in January 2019 by GÉANT, the leading technology organization for higher education and research institutions in Europe, the OCRE framework facilitates access to cloud computing for more than 50 million users across thousands of research institutions in 40 European countries.

In January 2021, OCRE also announced over €1M in funding for fifteen innovative research projects in astrophysics, healthcare imaging and drug delivery, climate research, machine learning, and AI.

Google Cloud Compute is available to Research and Education in these countries
