The Swedish e-Science Research Centre (SeRC)
The Swedish e-Science Research Centre (SeRC) is formed by the universities in Stockholm and Linköping – KTH, Linköping University (LiU), Stockholm University (SU) and Karolinska Institutet (KI) – around the two largest high-performance computing centres in Sweden: PDC at KTH and NSC at LiU. Research at SeRC is focused on the collaboration between tool makers and tool users, and this proposal brings together a core of nationally leading IT research teams and leading scientists in selected strategic application areas. The proposed Swedish e-Science Research Center will constitute a leading visionary e-Science node with a national scope and strong international ties. The four partner universities are together committed to strengthening and shaping the emerging e-Science landscape in Sweden and to give research in this field clear priority in their strategic plans.
