The Academy of Finland is funding research infrastructures with 13,6 million euro


9 Feb 2016 Espoo - The Academy of Finland has granted 13,6 million euro funding for research infrastructures. In total, the Finnish Research Infrastructure (FIRI) Committee granted funds for 47 infrastructure projects. Funding is granted yearly to the best national or international infrastructures utilized by Finnish researchers. CSC is part of four of these projects.

EUCLID Cosmology Mission is the next cosmology satellite of the European Space Agency (ESA). The main object of EUCLID is to solve the mystery of dark energy - why is the expansion of the universe accelerating. EUCLID is a wide-field space telescope that in the course of six years will photograph over a third of the sky and produce a 3-dimensional map of the universe, the distribution of galaxies and dark matter. One of the EUCLID Science Data Centers will be located in Finland, led by the University of Helsinki and as a collaboration of several Finnish Universities and CSC - IT Center for Science Ltd.

"Data-intensive computing is a fast growing method in science. Hosting this Science Data Center allows CSC to provide important customized services in data-intensive computing to the EUCLID community", stated Director Janne Ignatius at CSC.

Additionally, CSC is part of three other research infrastructures funded by the Academy of Finland. Biobanking and Biomolecular Resources Research Infrastructure (BBMRI.fi), the Finnish National Node of BBMRI-ERIC, aims to create an internationally leading biobank infrastructure supporting biomedical research, health care and biomedical industry. Sequencing Initiative Suomi (eSISu) is a database of Finnish sequence data for researchers and clinicians. Allele frequencies from the first batch of exomes are freely available at www.sisuproject.fi . The Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe (PRACE) is the European high performance computing (HPC) infrastructure. PRACE hosts the leading-edge HPC systems in Europe (Tier-0 systems). CSC represents Finland in the PRACE projects, and provides a seamless route to the Tier-0 resources for Finnish researchers. CSC also hosts one of the PRACE Advanced Training Centers which carries out training and education activities.
