ARCHER Champions: spreading the word

ARCHER Champions began with a vision: every research organisation that could benefit from ARCHER should have someone local who knows about the routes to access ARCHER and who can help potential users to get started.

We want Champions to tell us how we can improve support for them and their local users, and how to start joining up all the HPC facilities and the people with the expertise around the UK.

All ARCHER Champions can now apply for access to ARCHER, with a budget, so that if they are not already users then they can experience using ARCHER for themselves and be able to demonstrate to others. We will also forge further links with other HPC networks such as HPC-SIG and the Research Software Engineers with a view to co-locating a future Champions meeting and continuing to provide our Champions with resources and information. 

We would like to thank everyone who has helped get ARCHER Champions off to such a great start. 

Get involved!

Our next ARCHER Champions workshop will be in Oxford from 5–6 September 2016. Registration is now open: www.archer.ac.uk/training/registration
