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 is that Norway alone does not have sufficient critical mass and funding to develop and maintain e-infrastructure services that cover all needs of Norwegian researchers. Or 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.
