Research Cyberinfrastructure


Create… Share… Discover… Collaborate

This UCSD-sponsored program offers campus researchers the facilities, data curation, computing, networking, and expertise to facilitate their research using shared cyberinfrastructure services across campus.

During FY14-15, RCI will transition to the new Integrated Digital Infrastructure (IDI) program, which will continue to offer these services while developing additional ways to serve your needs.

Campus supports UCSD principal investigators by providing these cost-effective, reliable services for use in ongoing research and for incorporation into future research proposals. Services are available at a reduced cost, subsidized by the IDI program.

Most services are also available to non-UCSD researchers at attractive non-subsidized rates.
