EPCC has received funding via the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) to continue its work with the Scottish Administrative Data Research Partnership (S-ADRP).
The aim of the partnership is to enable research that leads to policy decisions that will in turn will help Scotland progress towards the vision outlined in the National Performance Framework. This framework helps to shape high level research priorities for Scottish Government, including tackling poverty, providing quality jobs and fair work for all, and ensuring that we live in inclusive, empowered, resilient and safe communities. S-ADRP consists of a number of Strategic Impact Programmes (SIPs) each dealing with a research priority.

December 2018 marks the end of the Fortissimo project. EPCC has been collaborating in the programme since 2013, and during this time 92 business experiments have been carried out with over 100 small European companies, many of which had no previous experience of using HPC.

EPCC leads the Fortissimo project, which 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.

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.

The International Parallel Computing Conference (ParCo) was held in Edinburgh from 1st–4th September. ParCo2015 was the 16th instance of the series which started in 1983, making it the longest running series of international conferences in Europe on advances in the development and application of parallel computing technologies.

The Fortissimo project, which is coordinated here at EPCC, gives companies a low-risk opportunity to try out HPC. By combining it with cloud computing, they can gain the benefits without buying and running their own systems. Here are three examples of HPC in action under Fortissimo.
