Learning from others

The Victorian life sciences computation iniative could be a good example for the Basque bioregion. One of their key problems is that there is a lot of duplication of resources and personel, what increases cost.
The center is forming, but I believe it is quite important to understand their case, as we are quite similar with this Australian region.
  • to strengthen the outstanding life sciences reputation and capability of Victorian institutions and researchers
  • to make significant investment in high performance computing facilities and research support services
However I would never follow a classic supercomputing center model. The model is old, and probably useless. What I always talk about, is specialization, top quality management and operation strategy. A supercomputing per se is void.

The previous web page provides details and comprehensive information.
