In addition to the responsibility report, we have also published CSC’s 2022 Report of the Board of Directors & Financial Statements as its own document.

Our responsibility report aims to give a comprehensive and versatile picture of the various aspects of responsibility as well as CSC’s most important activities and events in 2022. The report also opens up the impact of CSC’s activities in a comprehensive way.

The most important activities in 2022

The single largest event in 2022 was the inauguration of the LUMI infrastructure for joint European scientific computing in June. After approximately 60 projects carried out in the pilot phase, the extensive computational resources of the third most powerful supercomputer in the world, LUMI, were made available for application for all European researchers in January 2023.

Last year, great leaps were also taken in quantum computing when LUMI was connected to the Finnish VTT quantum computer Helmi. The EuroHPC Joint Undertaking also selected European quantum computer hosting sites in the autumn, and LUMI-Q was one of the selected projects. Its quantum computer will be located in Ostrava, at the Czech LUMI partner IT4Innovation’s centre, and it will also be connected to LUMI in due course.

In spring 2022, CSC launched its Sensitive Data (SD) services for verified data security suitable for processing sensitive research data. In the summer, they were supplemented with a limited version of the SD Desktop service, which is tailored to the needs of the secondary use of data authorised by the Social and Health Data Permit Authority Findata.

In autumn 2022, CSC was selected to lead an international project to develop the Climate Digital Twin to simulate the Earth’s climate. This digital twin will serve as a key tool for assessing the impacts of climate change and supporting the decision-making on climate change adaptation in Europe. The project is part of the Destination Earth programme of the European Commission and commissioned by the ECMWF, the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts.

The digital transformation of higher education institutions progressed rapidly as the Digivisio2030 project. CSC runs the project office for this project. In autumn 2022, CSC was also selected as Digivisio’s service operator with a one-year agreement. We aim to renew our position at the end of 2023.

In addition to European cooperation, CSC has also concluded a number of significant cooperation agreements during the past year, for example with centres in the following countries: the United States, Japan, Australia and Singapore. This will also create new paths to international cooperation and computational resources for Finnish research communities.
