ISVs:

What is the impact of the experiment as a whole on your business?

HPC center:

What is the impact of the experiment as a whole on your business?

5 Innovation and complementarity (max. 1 page)


What are the innovative aspects of your application experiment, and how does it complement the existing ones.

Some examples of innovative aspects:

  1. enable end users to access computational Cloud engineering services not yet used by them

  2. allow simulations of more complex models for developing better products / for improved reliability assessment and compliance with requirements or better predictability of product behavior ("design for X" and simulation/optimization)

  3. enable/support complex computational engineering services and workflows in the Cloud enhancing the interoperability of data and tools

  4. others

Please explain and discuss.

6 Exploitation (max. 1 page)


How are the results going to be exploited during and beyond the lifespan of the experiment?

How are you going to continue the partnership of this experiment after the end of the project?

How do you like to scale up after the end of the experiment to include other users, countries, etc.?

How will the experiment results (incl. software) be available to CloudFlow after the end of your experiment?

7 Technical approach (max. 2 pages)


Explain how you want to implement and run the experiment.

  • What are the building blocks of your solution?

  • Which changes do you plan to perform on the building blocks, e.g. modularization and cloudification of your software?

  • How are the building blocks related, and how will they be integrated?

Please describe the technical approach, the corresponding activities and involved partners hinting to the tables in section 8.

Total






















Please fill the table. Explain clearly and justify your (types of) costs (other direct, subcontracting, etc.), e.g.:

  • use of HPC resources

  • software

  • etc.

Note that additional costs for the CloudFlow Competence Center do not have to be considered here. There is independent financing for existing CloudFlow partners of up to 40% (estimated, on average) of the total EC contribution requested by an experiment (maximum 110 000€ ). In sum the total per experiment EC contribution could add up to 110 000€ + 44 000€. In case the proposal is selected for financing the CloudFlow Competence Center will specify in detail the budget distribution amongst existing partners.

10 Consortium (max. 2 pages, max. ½ page per partner)


Please describe the consortium as a whole.

Please describe what each partner brings to the experiment and to the CloudFlow project.

Please provide a company profile, key personnel (per partner, existing CloudFlow partners need not be listed)

Comments / instructions:

0

The proposal fails to address the criterion under examination or cannot be judged due to missing or incomplete information.

1

Very Poor - The criterion is addressed in an inadequate manner, or there are serious inherent weaknesses.

2

Poor - While the proposal broadly addresses the criterion, there are significant weaknesses.

3

Acceptable - The proposal addresses the criterion, although significant improvements are possible.

4

Good - The proposal addresses the criterion well, although certain improvements are still possible.

5

Very Good - The proposal successfully addresses all relevant aspects of the criterion in question. Any shortcomings are minor.

Only integer numbers are possible.

Rules for acceptance

  • Threshold for the total score is 30 out of 50.

  • At most 3 categories can be strictly below 3 points.

  • In case of a tie of two or more proposals reaching the same numerical score and lying at the cut-off for acceptance imposed by the available funding resources, the CloudFlow Competence Center will take the decision which one(s) to accept. This decision then has to be justified towards the European Commission as represented by the Scientific Officer of the CloudFlow project.
