Research, Development & Innovation Activities
CSC proactively seeks out opportunities to innovate and develop new services for our customers. To fulfill our special task to support the higher education and research we systematically monitor what can be future key technologies and services, and we initiate and take part in collaborative Research, Development & Innovation (RDI) projects to benefit research and education. CSC seeks much of its external RDI funding from Academy of Finland, Business Finland, Connecting Europe Facility (CEF), EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation (Horizon 2020, Horizon Europe), European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and Nordic e-Infrastructure Collaboration (NeIC).
We take part in over 60 externally funded RDI projects together with our partners. This collaboration brings direct benefits to Finland as it enables us to offer state-of-the-art services, such as world-class computing capacity and data services, directly to the researchers. In addition, the projects allow us to bring our stakeholders views into international discussions on common standards and policies. All with the aim to enhance the competitiveness, performance and quality of European science, and society at large.
The current emphasis on open science is caused by the crisis of reproducibility and inability to make full use of existing research, which CodeRefinery has addressed by teaching key tools and practices. CodeRefinery3 will ensure the long-term success of the lessons developed during previous project phases by funding a central coordination of in-kind contributions.Read More »
