Industry Access - Cy-Tera/LinkSCEEM Open Research and Development Access Model

E-mail Print

Most industrial companies which use HPC consider it as an indispensable tool which allows them to be competitive in their respective markets. Similar to programs running in the USA, Japan and Europe, the Cy-Tera/LinkSCEEM Open Research Model now allows companies based in the Eastern Mediterranean region to access LinkSCEEM HPC resources to increase their competitiveness and develop innovative industrial research.

In this Open R&D business model industrial users may only use the facilities and services provided by the infrastructure for basic research and development purposes. The condition associated with this free access is for the industrial user to publish all results obtained at the end of the grant period.


Projects coming from industry (which may include academic partners) are subject to the same Cy-Tera/LinkSCEEM peer-review process as academic project applications. This process is outlined in the “Cy-Tera and LinkSCEEM HPC ACCESS: Guide for applicants” document which has as main criterion the scientific excellence of proposals. If an industrial project is successful in this peer review process, the respective industrial partners will be awarded computational access to LinkSCEEM resources free of charge during a one-year allocation period. For more information on the Cy-Tera and LinkSCEEM HPC ACCESS, go here:

The particular conditions that apply to companies are:

• The company needs to have its head office and/or substantial R&D activity in the Eastern Mediterranean region.
• The employment contract of the project leader with the research organisation must last at least 3 months after the end of the allocation period.
• Commercial companies may apply on their own or in collaboration with academia.
• Commercial companies applying on their own will be limited to a maximum of 5% of the total Cy-Tera/LinkSCEEM computing resources, subject to limitations imposed by national state-aid regulations and other possible concerns
• Projects must demonstrate scientific excellence, focus on topics of major relevance for Eastern Mediterranean region research, include elements of novelty, transformative aspects, and have a recognised scientific impact.
