Our infrastructures


eSSENCE are connected with several infrastructures to enable our research.

The Swedish National Infrastructure for Computing

SNIC is a national research infrastructure that provides a balanced and cost-efficient set of resources and user support for large scale computation and data storage. This is to meet the needs of researchers from all scientific disciplines and from all Swedish universities and university colleges. Infrastructures that are both part of SNIC and part of eSSENCE.


Uppsala Multidisciplinary Centre for Advanced Computational Science

UPPMAX is hosted by the Department of Information Technology, Faculty of Science and Technology at Uppsala University and is one of the six centra in SNIC. UPPMAX is also part of the SweGrid national grid.

Funding comes from SNIC, the Faculty of Science and Technology, and the Faculties of Medicine and Pharmacy.

Centre for Scientific and Technical Computing at Lund University

LUNARC provides computational resources for academia in Sweden within all aspects of computational science.

The center has been in operation since 1986.  As of 2003, the services are synchronized with five other centers within the Swedish National Infrastructure for Computing, SNIC.

High Performance Computing Center North

HPC2N is a national center for Scientific and Parallel Computing.

It is collaboration between universities and research institutes who form a competence network for high performance and parallel computing, grid and cloud computing, scientific visualization and virtual reality (VR), as well as effective mass-storage solutions, in Northern Sweden.
