Network of Resources (NoR)

The EO Network of Resources (NoR) initiative promotes the use of European resource and platform services to facilitate a simplified and efficient exploitation of EO data in cloud environments.

The initiative incentivises providers to contribute to a common framework harmonising the access to their services and helping the user to work with the data.

A best practice tender for the selection of Resource Tier providers that have cloud services with collocated Sentinel and non-Sentinel data will shortly be issued via EMITS.

Resource Tier providers wishing to contribute to the NoR service directory are invited to submit a proposal. The tender process is made as simple as possible for interested service providers to respond.

A separate tender will be issued for platform services in order to further complement the NoR service portfolio.

The NoR initiative (not related to the above NoR Tenders) also provides the opportunity for sponsorship for approved user projects requiring Resource and Platform Tier Services – see further details here.
