The HELIX NEBULA Science Cloud (HNSciCloud) project is run by a consortium of ten procurers and two other partners; it is funded partly by the European commission, has a total volume of 5.5 MEUR and runs from January 2016 to June 2018. By its nature as a pre-commercial procurement (PCP) project, it addresses needs that are not covered by any commercially available solution yet. The contribution will explain the steps, including administrative and legal ones, needed to establish and conduct the project, and will describe CERN's experience as the lead procurer of the project.
