Give us your views on new research infrastructure for large-scale computing resources

In its work on how a research infrastructure for large-scale computing resources can be organised, the Swedish Research Council is now inviting views from users. How should the research infrastructure be structured, and what requirements should we set for it?

In June this year, the Swedish Research Council decided to call off the process for renewed funding of the Swedish Infrastructure for Computing, SNIC. We are now working out how a new infrastructure for large-scale computing resources should be organised.

On 11 October, we had a hearing where we informed about the ongoing work and gathered views from the research community on the design and the requirements for an infrastructure for large-scale computing resources.

If you were unable to take part in the hearing, you now have the opportunity to give us your views via email: How should we design such a research infrastructure, and what requirements should we set for it?

Please send your views to no later than 5 November 2021.

What happens next?

The Council for Research Infrastructures, RFI, will address the issue this autumn.

News from 21 June: Need for a new national research infrastructure for large-scale computer resources




  1. Large-scale computational resources

    Are you doing research in computational science? Then you can apply for access to Swedish and European computational resources at NAISS and EuroHPC. Here you can read more about how to do this.

  2. ArchLab

    ArchLab is a distributed research infrastructure that coordinates a number of laboratories that use natural science methods to tackle archaeological questions. The infrastructure is under construction and is coordinated from Umeå University.

  3. Research infrastructures will be able to get funding for 10 years

    The Government is making a change to the Swedish Research Council’s instructions, which means that we can fund research infrastructure of national interest for a longer period, extending from the current 6 years to 10 years. The purpose is to improve...
