International Collaboration

Sigma2 participates in several international initiatives and collaborations in the field of high performance computing and data infrastructure. 

The primary motivation to participate in international activities is that Norway in isolation does not have sufficient critical mass and funding to develop and maintain e-infrastructure services that at any time cover all the needs of Norwegian researchers and that is state-of-the-art concerning hardware, software, standards and policies.

The mission is thus to expand Norway's national e-infrastructure service offering through European cooperation, resulting in Norwegian research teams gaining benefits from the international cooperation.
