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

For Researchers outside of France

  • Grid'5000 is funded by institutions such as Inria, CNRS, and many universities. Access to Grid'5000 is available to members of contributing institutions and can be extended to their active collaborators and to selected outstanding research projects. If you have an active formal collaboration with academic researchers from France (e.g. via a European project) or a special agreement, you may be able to get a regular account thanks to it (using the same form as if you were an academic in France). Ask your French collaborators or local Grid'5000 representative for details in order to use the form provided in the paragraph above, NOT the open-access one below.
  • If you do not have an active collaboration or agreement with academic researchers from France, you can request an account with:

the Open Access FORM
