The Swedish National Infrastructure for Computing (SNIC) is a national research infrastructure that provides a balanced and cost-efficient set of resources and user support for large scale computation and data storage to meet the needs of researchers from all scientific disciplines and from all over Sweden (universities, university colleges, research institutes, etc). The resources are made available through open application procedures such that the best Swedish research is supported.
The SNIC partner centers host and operate aforementioned compute and storage resources and a variety of end-user functionalities. Additionally, the SNIC partner centers provide the expertise to ensure that researchers can make optimal use of the resources via user support service that answers queries and helps to resolve problems with installing and running software and management of data.
SNIC partner centers
There are six universities which hosts SNIC partner centers. Sorted by geographic location, from north to south the SNIC partner centers are located at the following universities:
- HPC2N, Umeå University
- UPPMAX, Uppsala University
- PDC, KTH Royal Institute of Technology
- NSC, Linköping University
- C3SE, Chalmers University of Technology
- LUNARC, Lund University
SNIC is financed by the Swedish government through the Swedish Council for Research Infrastructure (VR-RFI) and the Swedish universities which hosts a SNIC partner center.
