The aim is to design and build the knowledge environment and infrastructure for a sustainable operation and provisioning of compute- and data-intensive services to the broader user communities, allowing the center to promote the science hub role of CyI in the EM region, collaborate with local and EM institutions and facilities, provide advanced training, and access to infrastructure, and to technical and scientific competencies.

The infrastructure of the upgraded center will be developed to address data and compute requirements, deliver the objectives of the project and ensure its long-term sustainability. It will be accessible to all researchers in Cyprus through open calls for proposals and continue to serve as a Tier-1 within PRACE. It will provide computational and data resources and user support to scientists in the EM region through a regional shared computational infrastructure currently realized in partnership with the Library of Alexandria in Egypt and the VI-SEEM project.
