    The resources in the national e-infrastructure are available for research and education, but written agreements may be established with Sigma2 for other usage of the resources. Organizations that do not fall in the above categories, but that would like to have access, should contact Sigma2.

    Project leadership criterias

    The applicant must either hold a permanent position, be a postdoctoral fellow or be a temporary employed researcher at his/her organization.

    The qualified user has to be project leader for the project, but it is possible for other researchers to be assigned as assistant project leaders, so called executive officers (XO).
