Strategic goal: Maintain and Further Develop a Funding Platform for Research e-Infrastructures

E-infrastructures must be continuously updated to remain relevant and useful. Requirements and expectations concerning transport, storage and calculations on exponentially growing data amounts make ever new demands on the e-infrastructures. At the same time the technological development makes the existing equipment obsolete within a relatively short time frame.

DeiC wants to offer a permanent high level of the national e-infrastructure for the benefit of current and future research. It requires a stable and long-lasting funding to ensure the continuous maintenance, renewal and replacement of e-infrastructure that can live up to the evolution of both research and technology.

Objectives

  • Ensure access for Danish researchers to large international supercomputing facilities.
  • Establish a self-funding model for the network.
  • Ensure a long-term funding model for the other e-infrastructures through dialogue with research councils and universities.
