The goal is to organize provisioning of software (for NLP research) in a manner that makes it possible and cost-efficient to maintain the exact same software stack on multiple systems. Here, systems initially means different superclusters, e.g. Puhti in Finland and Saga in Norway; sometime in 2021, we anticipate to additionally support the LUMI environment. In principle, As part of the NLPL use case in EOSC-Nordic, we are evaluating EasyBuild for this purpose.
