State of the art digital infrastructure for computing power and storage is crucial for fulfilling the ambitions in AU “Strategy 2025” on more interdisciplinary research powered by large datasets and algorithms while ensuring sufficient data protection. Tech needs to improve its data infrastructure and data management in order to meet national and international requirements and reap the benefits of research and teaching powered by data from across the faculty.
The purpose of the Digital Infrastructure Committee at the Faculty of Technical Sciences is to contribute to the strategic objectives by managing and coordinating the digital infrastructure and resources at Tech related to both computing and storage. The Committee should contribute to new HPC-initiatives that power new research areas in and between existing research areas.
The Digital Infrastructure Committee at Tech should be a forum for strategic discussions and exchanges of experiences across departments and interface with the AU HPC Committee.
