The BiG Grid project has ended at 31 December 2012. As from January 2013, SURFsara is responsible for the national e-Infrastructure,
The project enabled access to High Performance Computing infrastructure for scientific research in the Netherlands. The goal was to facilitate scientific research through access to advanced ICT research infrastructures. We were an operational partner in the BiG Grid project, which was founded by Nikhef and NBIC.
We have contributed our knowledge and expertise to providing solutions for the scientific community and provided support and consultancy in a variety of ways. Scientific activities were supported in both short and long term projects or by organizing training sessions. Also, we advised and supported individual scientists in their daily work using the national e-Infrastructure.
Researchers can apply for access to the e-Infrastructure and support.
