What we do

In the Service and Support for Science IT (S3IT) unit, we provide support for science in general, and for life science and medicine in particular. S3IT serves as a partner for both local and national projects to enable competitive research with the advanced use of computational methods and resources. Our team advises groups and projects about data management and data analysis, and cooperates to optimize their specific workflow. S3IT also takes part in national projects and cooperates with similar technology-oriented groups to ensure that its expertise is always up-to-date.
