E-infra 2030

It is expected that the current national financing scheme for the development and operation of e-infrastructures in Norway will not be sufficient to match the needs from current and future users for national high-performance computing and large-scale data storage resources. A national working group consisting of representatives from the four oldest universities, Sigma2 and the Research Council of Norway is therefore currently looking into these challenges.

The purpose of the work is to suggest an updated national strategy for the organization, development and sustainable financing of e-infrastructure services for high performance computing and large-scale data storage in Norway in the period from 2020 to 2030.
