EPCC HPC Systems Team and EPCC User Support Team awarded Principal’s Medal for Exceptional Contribution
EPCC's HPC Systems Team and User Support Team have both been awarded the University of Edinburgh's Principal’s Medal for Exceptional Contribution.
The award was granted for "delivering exceptional service and demonstrating amazing commitment during the COVID-19 pandemic by developing the Edinburgh International Data Facility on time, and against all of the odds, supporting the Nightingale Hospital in London, and other ground-breaking COVID-19 research projects."
The Principal’s Medal was first awarded in 2008 and is one of the most important ways in which the University recognises both professional services and academic colleagues or current students who have made outstanding contributions to both the University and wider communities, and consistently demonstrated the University’s Values. These awards are the highest bestowed upon students and staff in the University.
