About SNIC

Scientists, engineers, human and social scientists across Sweden - many of them at universities, university colleges and research institutes - use advanced digital resources and services in their work every single day. Things like supercomputers, collections of data, and new software tools are critical to the success of those researchers, who use them to contribute to making our lives healthier, safer and better.

The Swedish National Infrastructure for Computing (SNIC) is a national research infrastructure that provides a balanced and cost-efficient set of resources and user support for large scale computation and data storage to meet the needs of researchers from all scientific disciplines and from all over Sweden (universities, university colleges, research institutes, etc). The resources are made available through open application procedures such that the best Swedish research is supported.

SNIC provides access to a variety of supercomputers and storage resources for data analysis across the country. SNIC also provides expertise to ensure that researchers can make optimal use of these resources. 

The SNIC infrastructure is funded by the Swedish Research Council (Vetenskapsrådet) and the partners. SNIC is organized as a long-term project (2012-2016), with its own Board. The SNIC office is hosted by Uppsala University. SNIC includes six partners that provide the resources and services that constitute the SNIC infrastructure.
