The Swedish National Infrastructure for Computing (SNIC) is a national research infrastructure providing resources for large-scale computation (HPC), storage and advanced user support for academic research in Sweden. SNIC supports Swedish research of the highest quality in all scientific disciplines requiring SNIC resources. For large-scale analysis of sensitive data, SNIC offers SNIC SENS, a resource for secure handling of this type of data. SNIC manages the Swedish contribution to CERN’s computational infrastructure WLCG (the Worldwide LHC Computing Grid).

Uppsala University hosts SNIC. Other participating higher education institutions and organisations include Chalmers University of Technology, University of Gothenburg, Karolinska Institutet, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Linköping University, Lund University, Stockholm University, Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences and Umeå University.

The Council for Research Infrastructures (RFI) funds this research infrastructure, which the Swedish Research Council considers to be in the national interest.

Contact person at Uppsala University is Hans Karlsson, Director at SNIC.
