Addendum to the agreement with European XFEL regarding Big Data analyzes in pandemic conditions

On December 8, 2020, NCBJ director, professor Krzysztof Kurek and European XFEL GmbH director, professor Robert Feidenhansl signed an addendum to the cooperation agreement between their institutions. The agreement was enriched with provisions that set the framework and goals of possible collaboration in the Conceptual Project phase of the Scientific Big Data Analysis project. Its provisions will be implemented in the case of granting NCBJ by the Ministry of Science and Higher Education through participation in the "International Co-financed Projects" program.

CIŚ at NCBJ is the only foreign computing center where data of users of the Hamburg X-ray free electron laser can be collected and processed. The conditions of the pandemic and the accompanying necessity to perform many activities remotely necessitate the search for new solutions also in the area of ​​experiment handling.
