CSC is prioritising the provision of computing capacity and expert assistance for research aimed at combating the COVID-19 pandemic


Across the CSC supercomputing environment, some of which is located in their Kajaani data centre, a joint project carried out by four Finnish research organisations has studied the transport and spread of coronavirus through the air. Preliminary results indicate that aerosol particles carrying the virus can remain in the air longer than was originally thought, so it is important to avoid busy public indoor spaces. This also reduces the risk of droplet infection, which remains the main path of transmission for coronavirus.

Kajaani continues to grow it’s supercomputing campus, putting to use the ideal infrastructure and resources clustered around the location.
