About the Lifeportal

Lifeportal is a community-backed project. Major stakeholders contribute in-kind in the form of development hours, help-desk services, operations and infrastructure costs. The project has a steering group consisting of representatives from the contributing stakeholders, and the Lifeportal project leader apply for a large grant of CPU-resources from Notur through the normal mechanisms.

The CPU resources allocated by Notur are distributed to Lifeportal users. Users apply for sub-allocations through a simplified application procedure. The applications are processed continuously. The requirements for applicants are identical to the requirements for applicants for Notur projects.
