Total budget: 210 million SEK.  eSSENCE – a national collaboration in e-science. SNIC (Swedish National Infrastructure for Computing), is under the Swedish Science Council a metacentre whose task is to coordinate and develop high end computing capacity for Swedish research. UPPMAX (Uppsala Multidisciplinary Center for Advanced Computational Science), which is Uppsala University's center for high performance computing. UpCERG Uppsala Computing Education Research Group

8 Informationsteknologi Institutionen för informationsteknologi | Citations from external evaluation (KoF) The friendly atmosphere and the cohesiveness that prevails at the Information Technology Department have been mentioned by several members. The panel believes that such friendly atmosphere is indeed a valuable and rather unique asset that undoubtedly contributes to the quality of the work performed at the department. … world-class quality … world leading … internationally recognized

9 Informationsteknologi Institutionen för informationsteknologi | Our graduated students and PhDs are much appreciated in industry and academia. Several high tech spin-offs: Skype, Acumem, Trade Extensions, OptiMobile, Wisenet Holding Collaboration with several major Swedish companies: Ericsson, ABB, Scania, Volvo… Future systems for train traffic control in Sweden is based on HCI research. Extensive academic collaboration nationally and internationally. Impact
