French

On September 27, 2018, Compute Canada will launch our annual Resource Allocation Competitions (RAC), a peer-reviewed process to grant priority access to storage and compute resources beyond what can be obtained via the Rapid Access Service.

These competitions are open to Canadian research projects from all disciplines. Applications are evaluated for both technical feasibility and scientific excellence.

For RAC 2019, researchers can apply to the following resource allocation competitions:

  • Resources for Research Groups (RRG) Competition
    This competition is aimed at applications from individuals or small groups of researchers in need of compute, storage or cloud resources at a scale beyond that available from local institutional or provincial resources. It is intended for faculty members from all disciplines and their sponsored users. Allocations are awarded typically for 1 year.

A Fast Track application process is available (by invitation only) for users with existing RRG allocations who meet specific criteria.

For the full RRG competition guidelines, please click here.

  • Research Platforms and Portals (RPP) Competition
    This competition enables communities to develop research projects that improve access to shared datasets, enhance existing online research tools and facilities, or advance national or international research collaborations. RPP 2019 is focussed solely on scientific gateways. RPP allocations can be awarded for a maximum of 3 years.

An updated Canadian Common CV is required for the submission of an RPP or an RRG application. Please consult the CCV Submission Guide for further instructions.
