You are eligible to be considered for an Institutional Project allocation if you work for or study at one of the institutions that is a NeSI Collaborator, or has a Subscription to the NeSI HPC Compute & Analytics Service. NeSI Project proposals must meet the following criteria:
- The underpinning research programme (that requires access to NeSI HPC services to achieve the objectives of the research) supports the Government’s Science Goals.
- Evidence that the Institution supports the research to be carried out in the NeSI Project. A primary test is the source of the funding for the research that the Proposal supports. Any of the following meet this requirement if the NeSI Project supports a component or components of research funded by:
- Health Research Council
- Royal Society of New Zealand, e.g. Marsden grants
- SSIF programme (previously known as CRI Core funding)
- Research programmes forming part of a National Science Challenge
- Research programmes forming part of a Centre of Research Excellence (CoRE)
- A Central Government agency
- Local Government
- An academic Department (e.g. Doctoral student)
- The applicant (who will be the "Project Owner" should the application be successful) must be a named investigator in the underpinning Research Project.
Note: If you are a postgraduate student at a Collaborator or Subscribing institution, you will very likely be considered for an Institutional Project Allocation, rather than a Postgraduate Project Allocation.
