Siku Access Request for Academic Researchers
Academic use of Siku is welcomed. Please note:

* Academic researchers at ACENET partner institutions can access Siku without charge.

* To meet sustainability objectives, Siku's scheduling priority is paid clients of the system.

* Siku is not intended to replace researcher’s use of the national infrastructure, but rather to accommodate needs and priorities that cannot be well met by these systems.

Academic researchers can request access to Siku by filling out this application form to determine if the system is the right fit for your needs. The form must be completed by the Principal Investigator.

We aim for approval within 2 working days. If approved, access will be reviewed annually in April.

* Industry, academic projects doing paid research for industry, academic researchers wishing to pay for access, or researchers from institutions not listed, please contact
