Spring 2024 Large Allocation calls open!

We have now opened the Spring 2024 Large allocation calls. Click the menu to explore the compute and storage resources we are offering. The deadline for proposals is 12 April 15:00 CEST.

NAISS coordinates and provides large scale computing and storage capacity to meet the needs of researchers from all areas of science. The resources are made available through a number of rounds with open application procedures such that the best Swedish research is supported.

NAISS resources are available to researchers at Swedish universities and other research institutes authorized by the Swedish Research Council.

Proposals are prepared and submitted in the Swedish User and Project Repository, SUPR, and reviewed by the National Allocation Committee (NAC) and its working-group (NAC-wg).

National Allocation Committee (NAC)

The National Allocations Committee is a body within NAISS, which independently is responsible for evaluating proposals for access to NAISS resources and for assigning allocations for NAISS Large rounds.

NAC adheres to the NAISS Allocation Policy. The policy and work of NAC for allocation of resources is in line with the Swedish Research Council (Vetenskapsrådet, VR) strategy and policies for grants for research and research infrastructures.

NAC Members

NAC Working-group

NAC is assisted by a group of technical experts, NAC-wg, which is responsible for evaluation of the technical feasibility of proposals and assists in the administration of projects. NAC-wg is led by the NAC chairman.

Open rounds

The NAISS resources are made available through a number of rounds with open application procedures. Computational and storage resources can be applied for as Small, Medium and Large projects. Small allocations can be requested at any time during the year and proposals will be reviewed at least once a week. Medium allocations can be requested at any time during the year and proposals available to the reviewers by the 15th will be reviewed and decided during that month. Large allocations can be requested in bi-annual calls, one in the spring and one in the fall.

Close to major holidays and during vacation periods, review of Small and Medium proposals may take longer time than indicated above.

Small and Medium proposals undergo a technical review, whereas Large proposals undergo both scientific and technical reviews.

For Small proposals, the applicant must be at least a doctoral student at an eligible Swedish institution. To qualify for Medium and Large proposals, the applicant must be at least an assistant professor at an eligible Swedish institution.
