While EPCC has always encouraged its MSc students to undertake real-world industry projects, we’ve never actually had a formal industry projects programme in place. Well, that’s all changed!

Last week we held the first in a series of annual meetings for the CP2K user community at the University of London Garden Halls.
I blogged about it in the run-up to the meeting, but as with any first until you're there you don't know quite what to expect. I was very pleased to see over 50 attendees on the day, ranging from new PhD students to professors, and expert CP2K users to complete novices.

My colleague Mike Jackson recently posted about the DiRAC driving test. DiRAC is the UK's integrated supercomputing facility for theoretical modelling and HPC-based research in particle physics, astronomy and cosmology and is used by numerous researchers with diverse backgrounds. Whilst much of their work is very different, one commonality is that it often requires in-depth technical and software engineering techniques. The idea of the driving test was therefore to ensure that all users have the required knowledge for effective use of the consortium’s machines.
