The Metacenter

The Sigma2 Metacenter

National coordination and shared, consolidated resources have cost and efficiency advantages but creates a “distance” to the end-users (researchers)​.

This is countered by keeping the support staff and competence near where the research is going on, at the universities​. The highly qualified staff at the universities provide expertise to ensure that researchers can make optimal use of the resources via a variety of user support services. 

Together, Sigma2 and the university staff form a pool of competence - the Metacenter.
