NeIC Community Wiki
The NeIC facilitates the development and operation of advanced IT tools and services in areas of importance to Nordic researchers.
The core values governing all of NeIC's activities are:
- NeIC services and development will be motivated by providing added value to researchers.
- NeIC will be a reliable partner displaying integrity, transparency, and accountability in all processes.
- NeIC will strive to be open; to new ideas and opportunities, and to its outputs in terms of knowledge, tools and services.
- NeIC will strive for continuous improvement in all aspects of its operation.
- NeIC will give priority to stakeholder engagement.
Strategy and focus areas
The NeIC strategy encompasses four focus areas: pool competencies, share resources, secure long-term funding and strengthen stakeholder dialogue. Those focus areas are further described in the strategy implementation plan and they are also supported by activities (separate section below) and working groups. Current working groups are
- Pool competencies working group - How to pool competences from the five countries to make the Nordics capable of tackling e-infrastructure challenges beyond what is currently possible on singular national scales.
- Provider forum -Fostering ideas and offering technical advice on current activites.

Day-to-day management of NeIC is handled by the Executive Team (XT), chaired by the Director. Functions of the XT include strategy implementation, project ownership, project portfolio management, committee facilitation, NeIC office management, facilitating the work of the NeIC board, NeIC commons. Project ownership includes steering group representation. Project portfolio management includes supporting project managers and stimulating mutual learning and improvement.
Functions of the Project Managers: Project management (team leadership), facilitation of project steering group meetings, engaging with project's stakeholders and beneficiaries, contribution to NeIC commons.
The ’NeIC commons’ is the wide range of common functions and services that keep our organisation flourishing. Some of these are offered through dedicated roles but several others need to be contributed by team members at large. NeIC staff are prepared to volunteer a fraction (say, 10%) of their available time to the NeIC commons in agreement with their team leader.

Collaboration is at the core of most or even all activities in NeIC. The ways to interact with NeIC are described on the page on Collaboration. If you are pressed for time, here is a quick breakdown: NeIC collaboration model for dummies.
Collaboration with NeIC is mainly through one of the following paths:
- Open invitation to the Nordic e-Infrastructure community to propose or develop ideas within current NeIC strategy
- Responding to letters of interest to start new activities or projects within NeIC.
