DeIC - Danish e-Infrastructure Cooperation
DeIC – Danish e-Infrastructure Cooperation was established on April 19 2012, with the purpose to support Denmark as an e-Science nation through delivery of e-infrastructures (computing, storage and network) to research and research-based teaching.
DeIC is established under the Ministry for Higher Education and Science by Act 70 of April 19 2012. Organizationally, DeIC belongs to the Danish Agency for Science, Technology and Innovation and is not an independent legal entity.
DeIC is a virtual organization, which means that all staff are employed in other organizations. Primarly at the Danish Technical University and to some extend at Aarhus University, Aalborg University, University of Southern Denmark and University of Copenhagen.
DeIC makes, in cooperation with the institutions, eScience accessible for all relevant Danish research environments, through coordination and delivery of e-infrastructures and guidance, in order to obtain national synergy in the area.
- DeIC meets Danish research need for e-infrastructures
- DeIC strengthens the collaboration and ongoing knowledge sharing between Danish research institutions in the eScience-area, and facilitates relevant international collaboration
- DeIC contributes to coherence and synergy in the eScience-area and contributes to an efficient national use of resources.
- DeIC contributes to Danish research has access to e-infrastructures, that meets the highest international standards
- DeIC takes initiatives and formulates and implements strategies, to contribute to a sustainable development of eScience in Denmark
- DeIC develop new instruments that can handle the challenges around HPC-facilities, network connections, data storage, security, identity management as well as guidance and education of new users.
- DeIC establishes a national and broad-based center of competence for inspiration and knowledge transfer around eScience.
- DeIC works for an appropriate public-private cooperation
- DeIC ensures a stable operative delivery of e-infrastructure (such as HPC-facilities, network connections, data storage, security and identity management)
DeIC Strategic Goals
- To realize DeICs vision and mission, and solve the strategic tasks, the Board has defined six strategic goals, defining the actions DeIC will focus on in the period.
- Ensure a national development of e-infrastructures according to international standards
- Ensure establishment of relations and e-infrastructures for international collaboration and knowledge sharing.
- Increase the use of eScience
- Maintain and further develop a funding platform for research e-infrastructures
- Coordinate solutions around data management and large data amounts
- Ensure that DeICs activities are known and widely used
