Policy for academics outside of France and/or non-academics

  • Researchers:
    • If you do not have an active collaboration with academic researchers from France, you can request an account through our open access program.
    • However, if you have an active formal collaboration with academic researchers from France (e.g. European project), you may be able to get an regular account (without the limitation of open-access accounts) thanks to them. Ask your French collaborators for details.
  • Private companies interested in providing or using resources may contact one of the Grid'5000 executive committee members.
