The Swedish National Infrastructure for Computing (SNIC) was a national research infrastructure that provided 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, et cetera). The resources were made available through open application procedures such that the best Swedish research was supported.
SNIC was funded by the Swedish Research Council (VR-RFI) and the 10 participating universities: Chalmers University of Technology, the University of Gothenburg, Karolinska Institutet, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Linköping University, Lund University, the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, Stockholm University, Umeå University, and Uppsala University (host).
The aforementioned compute and storage resources and a variety of end-user functionalities were hosted and operated by various SNIC parties with compute centres. Additionally, all SNIC parties provided expertise via a national user support service to ensure that researchers could make efficient use of the resources.
