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.
The vision for NeIC is to be a global role model for cross-border distributed and sustainable e-infrastructure collaborations. NeIC activities will center on digital infrastructure for Nordic research excellence.
There are four components of the NeIC 2020-2025 strategy:
- Beneficial collaborations are the principal way that NeIC brings together the needs, interests and resources to create e-infrastructure to support research excellence in the Nordic region.
- Nordic Influence is the effect that NeIC has in improving and advancing e-infrastructure for researchers and for society.
- Motivated People are essential in the collaborations and to bring the results into the research domains and society.
- Effective processes bind NeIC into an organization that is able to realize the benefits and influences that come from the collaborations.
These components of the strategy connect to three ranked priorities that justify the activities and projects that NeIC works on. The ranked priorities are:
- Deep Nordic interactions and collaborations
- Society, Ethics and Sustainability for research and societal value and sustainability through e-infrastructure collaborations
- Wide international interactions, collaborations and new roles.

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.
