Access policies

We strive to lower the entry barrier to access high-end services and professional support to all researchers.

Thanks to the capability of integrating national and European investments, we can optimise the use of financial resources across borders and among disciplines. In most cases, we offer services free at the point of use. When it is not possible, we revert to paid access. For special needs, we can also channel community funding to our providers.

Our ultimate goal is to lower the financial barrier to using the services for end users while ensuring that involved professionals and deployed computing infrastructures are compensated.
