With the implementation of the new granting framework, we are abandoning the normalization factor. Resources in the historical grants will be recalculated (divided by 4). When applying for a new grants, please take these changes into account for your estimated computational resources.
We are also saying goodbye to the Test grants. They are to be replaced by Pilot grants. As previously with the Test Grants, it will be possible to apply for a Pilot grant once a year. Pilot grants will be available on selected clusters, and their purpose is to give Users the possibility to test the capabilities of the PLGrid infrastructure. Pilot grants will last for one year, with resources allocated at 1,000 h and 10 GB per cluster.
