Call for applications of additional IDA capacity until Nov 30th, 2014

Additional capacity for projects requiring a large amount of storage capacity in the IDA research data storage service may once again be applied for. The Ministry of Education and Culture offers IDA as a secure storage service for research data and related metadata. The integrity of the stored data is maintained through managing multiple copies that are continuously checked.

The additional quota is intended for data-intensive research that requires large resources for a limited time. The Ministry of Education and Culture selects the projects to which a larger quota is granted based on need and scientific excellence.

It is possible to apply for additional capacity twice a year. The applications from this call must be sent at the latest on Nov 30th, 2014. The basic information of the approved applications is public. Therefore the applicant must fill all the information requested in the application, including a public abstract of the project.
