Scientific Large-scale Infrastructure for Computing/Communication Experimental Studies Starting Community

The digital transformation of our societies is enabled by the design, deployment and operation of continuously evolving, complex digital infrastructures. The research community needs a test platform to address significant challenges related to their efficiency, reliability, availability, range, end-to-end latency, security and privacy. The SLICES Research Infrastructure is under development to become the first Europe-wide digital test-platform to support large-scale, experimental research that will provide advanced computation, storage and network components, interconnected by dedicated high-speed links. The EU-funded SLICES-SC project will aspire to foster the community of researchers around this ecosystem, as well as create and strengthen necessary links with relevant industrial stakeholders for the exploitation of the infrastructure.
