The Institution (Collaborator or Subscriber) is responsible for carrying out Service Governance of Proposals for access to their HPC Compute and Analytics and Computational Science Service Allocations, supported by recommendations from the TQP.

  1. Eligibility: The PO must be an employee or enrolled post graduate student at the Institution.  If the PO leaves the Institution before the end date of the Research Project, the HPC and Computational Science Service (if provided) Allocations will be terminated. To progress the Research Project, a new Application will be required.
  2. Research Quality: NeSI does not assess Research Quality, rather the Institution does. However, the PO must provide evidence that the research underpinning the Proposal meets the Institution’s requirements. A primary test is the source of the funding for the research that the Proposal supports. Any of the following meet this requirement:
    • It is a component of an MBIE funded research grant
    • It is a component of an HRC funded research grant
    • It is a component of an RSNZ funded research grant
    • It is a component of an SSIF funded project
    • It is a component of a National Science Challenge research plan
    • It is a component of a Centres of Research Excellence research plan.
  3. The PO must specify Research Project’s title and Abstract
  4. The Institution is responsible for ensuring and confirming that the Proposal meets the research quality requirements of the Institution
  5. Evidence of Experience: The TQP will assess the PO and research team’s skills to ensure they are capable of using the HPC Compute and Computational Science Service (if provided) Allocations.
  6. Platform Recommendation: Using informed fitness-for-purpose criteria, and availability of the software specified in the application, the TQP will recommend the most suitable Platform(s) on which the proposed research Jobs should be executed.
  7. Computational Science Allocation size: If the applicants(s) do not have sufficient skills to make use of an HPC Allocation then the applicant may request an allocation from their Institution’s Computational Science Service Allocation to support use of their HPC Allocation.
  8. Number of Allocations: The PO on the Proposal may have no more than three (3) simultaneous Allocations active.
