Applicants to our annual Resource Allocation Competitions (RAC) can request storage and compute resources. Applications submitted to these competitions are evaluated for both technical feasibility and scientific excellence.
Who should apply?
Researchers who need more resources than are available through the Rapid Access Service (RAS) are encouraged to apply to our competitions:
The RPP competition is targeted specifically at applications that create new or support existing research platforms or portals. Allocations in this competition may be awarded over multiple years, up to a maximum of three years. This year, a Notice of Intent (prior to a full application) is not required for the RPP competition. For the full Competition Guidelines, please click here.
The Resources for Research Groups (RRG) competition is targeted at applications from individuals or small groups of researchers in need of compute or storage resources beyond what can be obtained via the Rapid Access Service. For the full Competition Guidelines, please click here.
Note that an updated Canadian Common CV is required for the submission of an RPP or an RRG application.
