We are a national centre operating computing and data storage infrastructure for research and development. Being a part of the national e-infrastructure e-INFRA CZ, we are recognized in the Roadmap of Large Infrastructures for Research, Experimental Development and Innovation of the Czech Republic. Complementary to the other two e-INFRA CZ consortium partners CESNET and IT4Innovations, we put emphasis on experimental ("leading edge" and even disruptive) use of the e-infrastructure to meet the evolving user needs.
Besides operating our own infrastructure, we take the initiative in other national and international infrastructure projects such as ELIXIR CZ and EOSC CZ. We also take the responsibility for e-infrastructure design and operation, and closely collaborate with a number of research infrastructures such as BBMRI, CEITEC and RECETOX. Our goal is to foster research collaboration with scientific communities across scientific areas.
Our colleagues and users appreciate our role not only as reliable service and infrastructure providers, but more importantly as partners in conducting applied research across data-intensive scientific domains.
