Applying for a new project

To be able to run on NSC resources, you need to be a member of a project. The information on this page is about applying for new projects. If the project already exists, see our page about becoming a member of a project.

SNAC Large, Medium and Small projects

Researchers linked to any Swedish academic institution may apply for time on NSC resources. Currently, NSC accept three sizes of applications as defined by SNAC, the Swedish National Allocation Committee for HPC resources: Large, Medium and Small.

The three different sizes of SNAC projects are:

Large: Applications are handled twice a year (calls in April and October) by SNAC, the Swedish National Allocation Committee for HPC resources. Approved projects will start on July 1st or January 1st, respectively, and run for 6 or 12 months. Read the SNIC information about large projects.

Medium: Applications are accepted at all times and are handled monthly. Approved projects will run for up to 12 months. Read the SNIC information about medium projects.

Small: Applications are accepted at all times and are handled continuously. Approved projects will run for up to 12 months, with a maximum allocation of 5000 core-hours/month. Read the SNIC information about small projects.

All SNAC projects are applied for in SUPR. You need to register yourself there (or login if you are already registered) and then select the appropriate round (for example "SNAC Medium, 2015" or "SNAC Small NSC, 2015") before using the "Create New Proposal for ..." button to start filling in the project proposal.

You will get email from SUPR when the project has been approved (or denied). The principal investigator and the co-investigators listed in the proposal will automatically become members of the project. Please see our instructions on how additional persons can become members of the project.

Small projects can be extended in time by sending email to . Large and medium projects cannot be extended, so you will have to apply for a new project. SUPR allows you to clone your latest proposal when you start filling in the new one.

LiU Local projects

Local researchers at Linköping university can apply for projects on dedicated LiU resources.

LiU local projects are applied for in SUPR. You need to register yourself there (or login if you are already registered) and then select the appropriate round (for example "LiU Local, 2015") before using the "Create New Proposal for ..." button to start filling in the project proposal.

You will get email from SUPR when the project has been approved (or denied). The principal investigator will automatically become a member of the project. LiU Local projects can be extended in time by sending an email to . Please see our instructions on how additional persons can become members of the project.
