Access policy - NI4OS-Europe general

The NI4OS-Euoper services can be accessed through the following access policies:

  • Policy-based: users are granted access based on policies defined by the resource providers; such policies usually apply to resources being offered with “sponsored use” to meet some national or EU level objective; for instance, a country may offer resources with “sponsored use” to support national researchers involved in international collaborations.
  • Wide access: users can freely access scientific data and digital services provided by resource providers.
  • Market-driven: users can negotiate a fee to access services either directly with resource providers.

Services allowing access to rival resources (e.g. computing capacity or storage space) are usually provided under a policy-based or market-driven access policy.
