A cooperative federated community creating digital research infrastructure to support STFC science


Cutting edge science needs cutting edge digital infrastructure

Scientific experiments, facilities and instruments require digital research infrastructure to manage, store, analyse and simulate their data.

IRIS is working with providers to create and develop the digital research infrastructure needed to allow UKRI to continue to play a leading role in global projects such as the Square Kilometre Array and Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment.

This infrastructure includes:

  • Compute power to process and simulate data

  • Short & long term data storage

  • Tools to help move and exploit data

  • Developing communities and encouraging knowledge sharing

  • Developing the skills needed for addressing tomorrow’s challenges

IRIS helps support science across the globe
