Acquiring Access

The resources provided by the Icelandic high performance computing centre (IHPC/IREI) are available to Icelandic universities and governmental research institutes. Scientists in independent research instututes may also gain access, provided their research is funded by public grants.

The expert panel of the IHPC/IREI grants access, and it is provided by two different means:

  1. by cooperation through the Rannís Infrastructure Fund (the Icelandic Centre for research). See more details here.
  2. by web application. See more details here.
