Usage instructions

ELIXIR Norway also hosts a documentation for the use of our infrastructure. The documentation can be found here

Storage request

To apply for a storage quota, download and fill in a storage request form (spread sheet) from here (this will be replaced soon)

Support model

Projects that can be solved within two working days or less are free of charge (enabled by funding from the Research Council of Norway). For more comprehensive projects, an hourly rate applies and you need to enter an agreement with ELIXIR Norway on this.

Projects that require an effort beyond technical assistance/consultancy may be set up as a research collaboration, e.g. by providing funding for a percentage of the position of a helpdesk member.
