Step 1 – Necessary approvals need to be obtained prior to application
Before you apply for access to an NGC Cloud, you must ensure that you have received all necessary approvals for gathering and processing data. The relevant Committee on Health Research Ethics (National or Regional) must approve your project before you can apply for read access to the National Genome Database. If you have not attached all relevant approvals, NGC Research Services cannot process your application.
Step 2 – Filling out the application form
In the application form, you must describe your project and how you expect to use the supercomputer. We will review your application and assess to what extent your research project fulfills the requirements of having a purpose within personalised medicine, and providing a significant societal benefit. We will confirm that we have received your application within a week.
We will provide a response to your application within five weeks. If your application results in an agreement on access to NGC infrastructure, you will be charged an administration fee of DKK 5,000.
Step 3 – Clarifying technical needs
Once you have received confirmation regarding access to an NGC Cloud, we will help clarify how your research project best can utilize the supercomputer. One of the advisors at Research Services will spar with you to determine the most appropriate configuration for your project, as well as identifying opportunities for merging different data sources.
Step 4 – Preparing the contract
Step 5 – Accessing NGC Cloud
After you have entered a contractual agreement with the Danish National Genome Center, it can take a few weeks before your NGC Cloud is configured. You will receive information on how to access your NGC Cloud once it is ready.
