All new users must create their account through the NCI online self service portal.

To create your account you will need the following information:

  • Your Name
  • Institutional email address (Gmail, Hotmail, etc are not accepted)
  • Mobile phone number (optional, but strongly encouraged as you otherwise won't be able to easily reset your password)
  • Either:
    • NCI project code of an existing project you wish to join
    • A new project proposal to be assessed by a Scheme Manager to determine if they will grant your project time

Note that resources at NCI are allocated to projects and not to individual users.
