We're looking for collaborative projects with industry and academia.

A new batch of students will soon be joining our MSc in High Performance Computing (HPC) and MSc in HPC with Data Science.

As ever we are on the look-out for interesting collaborative projects for the students to undertake towards the end of their course (roughly from April/May to August). 

Building a scaleable, extensible data infrastructure

Modern genome-sequencing technologies are easily capable of producing data volumes that can swamp a genetic researcher’s existing computing infrastructure. EPCC is working with the breeding company Aviagen to build a system that allows such researchers to scale up their data infrastructures to handle these increases in volume without compromising their analytical pipelines.

SHAPE (SME HPC Adoption Programme in Europe) is a pan-European initiative supported by PRACE (Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe). The Programme aims to raise awareness and provide European SMEs with the expertise necessary to take advantage of the innovation possibilities created by high-performance computing (HPC), thus increasing their competitiveness. SHAPE allows SMEs to benefit from the expertise and knowledge developed within the top-class PRACE Research Infrastructure.

The Fortissimo Marketplace is now open for business.

Fortissmo lowers the barriers for industrial users to access HPC-based simulation by offering the benefits of the cloud computing model (such as pay-per-use), together with support for first time users. Making HPC simulation more accessible to SMEs will increase their competitiveness - one of the key goals of the I4MS programme that supports Fortissimo.
