Access to advanced ICT research infrastructures is crucial to scientific research communities. Historically, NCF has facilitated access to high-end computing equipment (national supercomputer and national compute cluster). The BiG Grid project (led by partners NCF, Nikhef and NBIC) aims to set up a grid infrastructure for scientific research. This research infrastructure contains compute clusters, data storage, combined with specific middleware and software to enable research which needs more than just raw computing power or data storage.

The BiG Grid project is a collaboration between NCF, Nikhef and NBIC, and enables access to grid infrastructures for scientific research in the Netherlands.
