Step 1 – Receiving approval
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 scheme, you must describe your project, as well as how you expect to use the supercomputer. We will review your application and assess to what extent your research project falls within the field of personalised medicine, and whether it provides 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. You will be charged a fixed fee when submitting an application to use NGC Research Infrastructure.
Step 3 – Clarifying technical needs
Once you have received confirmation regarding access to an NGC Cloud, we will help clarify exactly how your research project best can take advantage of 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.
