The HPC-Europa3 Transnational Access programme includes access to world-class HPC systems and scientific collaboration with host researchers in any field. If you want to find out more about the programme then this video, originally part of the ARCHER series of webinars, is an excellent starting point.

Mats Simmermacher on his recent visit to Edinburgh through the HPC-Europa3 programme.

I am a theoretical chemist from the Technical University of Denmark near Copenhagen and I recently visited EPCC under the HPC-Europa3 transnational access programme. I was hosted by Dr Adam Kirrander at the University of Edinburgh's School of Chemistry.

HPC-Europa3 visit: molecular modelling of galectin binding compounds

Dr Domenica Capasso was our first HPC-Europa3 visitor at EPCC but was hosted remotely at UCL from Nov 2017 to Dec 2017. She relates her experiences and research in this blog article.

I recently spent a month in London funded by the HPC-Europa3 programme and hosted by Prof. Francesco Luigi Gervasio at the Department of Chemistry at UCL. This was an exciting experience for me, primarily for my research work but it also provided me with an opportunity to visit London, a city I had never been to before. I arrived in London with interesting biological results on some potential inhibitors of the galectins class of proteins, which had been synthesized at my Institute in Naples. Galectins (Gal) are β-D-galactoside binding proteins that have important implications for many diseases including tumourigenesis, inflammatory response and autoimmune disorders. The general aim of this work is to rationally design novel inhibitors of galectins that could be used as anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory therapies.

Miriam Ruiz Ferrández was a recent HPC-Europa3 visitor to Edinburgh who used EPCC resources while being hosted by Napier University. In this article she relates some of her findings and experiences.

Hi everyone! I am a PhD student at the University of Almería, which is located in the south-east of Spain. I spent three months in Edinburgh funded by the HPC-Europa3 programme working on a project entitled: “A Parallel Multi-Objective Algorithm for Optimizing High-Pressure/Temperature Treatments in the Food Industry”. During this research stay, I was collaborating with Professor Ben Paechter at Edinburgh Napier University and I used computing resources provided by EPCC at the University of Edinburgh.

HPC-Europa3 visit: detecting floating objects in the sea using aerial images

Dr Antonio Javier Gallego visited EPCC under the HPC Europa 3 Programme. He recounts his experiences in this blog article.

My name is Antonio Javier Gallego and I am from Alicante, Spain. I visited EPCC under the HPC-Europa3 programme hosted by Prof. Robert 'Bob' Fisher at The University of Edinburgh's School of Informatics. My research project consisted of the development of methods for the detection of floating objects in the sea from aerial images. In particular, two methods were proposed: one for the detection of oil spills and another for locating people in the sea (ie drowned, shipwrecked, or fallen overboard).

As a large part of our MSc cohort comprises students from outside the UK, and with the HPC-Europa3 programme currently bringing in researchers from mainland Europe, I thought it would be nice to invite our visitors to experience some traditional Scottish culture: a ceilidh.

The programme's Third Call for applicants is now open. It will close on Wednesday 28th February 2018.

The interdisciplinary HPC-Europa programme, which provides access to some of Europe’s top HPC facilities, is now running again. The programme pays travel and living costs for short collaborative research visits to a scientific host in another country. Applications can be submitted at any time, with four closing dates per year.

HPC-Europa returns!

We are delighted to announce the return of the much-loved HPC-Europa Transnational Access visitor programme.

HPC-Europa and its predecessor TRACS together supported more than 850 research visits to EPCC between 1993 and 2012. Over the last few years HPC-Europa has been much missed, judging by the number of former visitors and their colleagues and local host research groups who have contacted us to ask if there will be a new programme.
