Through periodic announcements, CESGA offers access to its resources to researchers of the scientific community of EU countries, the European Economic Area, countries of the CYTED program, and also to researchers with legal residence in any of these countries. The main objective of said announcements is to provide access to CESGA 's resources to research groups or individuals, a priority access to CESGA 's computational resources in order to carry out research projects, acquisition of knowledge, or training in the technologies of use in the installation. In order to serve ITCS users, CESGA annually makes available 3,000,000 hours of FinisTerrae computation, which is equal to 20% of the total computational hours per year. For more information regarding access to the announcements, please consult the ICTS information page.
