User Accounts

To create a personal user account and join a project that has resource allocations at UPPMAX, i.e.

  • NAISS projects
  • UPPMAX projects
  • Course projects

You (the user) and the PI of the project (the researcher in charge of the research project) must complete the following steps:

  1. You should visit the national project management platform SUPR and register there.
    Make sure that you don't already have an account at SUPR. You must not have more than one account in SUPR.
  2. You must accept the user agreement in SUPR, either online or in paper form.
  3. Become a member of a project:
    1. If you are a PI: apply for a project in SUPR.
    2. If you are not a PI: Apply for membership in a project you want to join in SUPR, Wait for the PI to accept your application. Alternatively, the PI can add you directly.
  4. You must apply for an account at UPPMAX in SUPR.

After the 4 steps are completed your account will be created at UPPMAX within 2 working days and you will receive two emails with information on how to access the UPPMAX resources.

Below are the five steps described more in detail with screenshots.

1. Register at SUPR.

  • If you clicked on register via SWAMID you will have to choose the university that you belong to. Here as an example I choose Uppsala University:
  • Klick on the University and then choose if you want to login via this SWAMID once
  • or if your browser should remember your choice and use everytime you visit SUPR
  • Next is to login to your university using whatever method your specific university uses to confirm that you are who you say you are.
    Here again as an example is Uppsala University:

  • You can now check the information your university has sent to SUPR and accept it to create a SUPR account.
  • If you instead click on Register without SWAMID you will have to fill in this:

2. Accept the User Agreement

  • After logging into your SUPR account you must accept the user agreement. Click on Handle User Agreement
User agreement

3. Become a member in a project

  • If you are a PI, apply for a project and go on to step 4.
