Academics are being called on to share their stories of how the UK's once fastest computer has furthered their research - and delivered wider economic and social benefits.
The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) has commissioned a group of independent experts to articulate the scientific, economic and social impact of HECToR, the UK's supercomputer from 2007 to early 2014, when it was replaced by its even faster successor ARCHER.
As part of the project, researchers that used HECToR are encouraged to respond to a brief online survey designed to capture the supercomputer's importance to academia and to the UK as a whole. Everyone who completes the survey will be entered into a draw to win one of five free time allocations on ARCHER.
The Fed4FIRE project has opened a competitive call for SME's wishing to carry out experiments using its federated Future Internet test facilities.
