Gudmund Høst
TrackTrack 3 --Lecture Hall IX on the First Floor
DescriptionThe vision of the Nordic e-Infrastructure Collaboration (NeIC) is to facilitate development and operation of high-quality e-Infrastructure solutions in areas of joint Nordic interest. Our focus is on targeted computing and data services for Nordic research groups and generic services in collaboration with national e-Infrastructure provider organisations.  Our operation involves collaboration between five countries at multiple levels, from policy-making to technical projects. The basic organisation, operation and business model of NeIC will be explained. Particular emphasis will be given to how collaboration is implemented in practise.  In particular, the challenge of engaging with the wide spectrum of stakeholders in a constructive manner will be discussed. Examples of stakeholders are national e-Infrastructure provider organisations, research funding agencies, academic high-performance computing centres and user communities.
