Next closing date for applications: 13th September 2018.

EPCC is a partner in the HPC-Europa3 Transnational Access programme, which funds collaborative visits using world-class HPC systems for researchers from any discipline. 

HPC-Europa has always been successful at building lasting links between research groups in different European countries, with a long legacy of joint publications, ongoing reciprocal research visits, and visitors securing subsequent research posts in their former host department. This, for me, has always been one of the most satisfying aspects of working on this programme - the feeling that the work I do really helps researchers to advance their careers.

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.
