Industry offered new supercomputing facility at Loughborough University
05 March 2013
March 20: learn more about how HPC Midlands, a new supercomputing facility based at Loughborough University, can help you in your product research and development.
High performance computing (HPC) is used to process vast quantities of data and undertake complex calculations. It has the potential to act as a catalyst for breakthroughs across a wide range of sectors including bio-informatics, engineering, finance, manufacturing, power generation, molecular modelling, science, and weather forecasting.
The 3,000 core supercomputer at the heart of HPC Midlands, combined with high performance computing expertise from Loughborough University and the University of Leicester, is now available for business and industry to use as a crucial tool for driving innovation.
On Wednesday 20 March, companies will have the opportunity to find out how access to the HPC Midands supercomputer could benefit their business. The launch event at Loughborough University will give delegates the chance to meet the team behind HPC Midlands; explore opportunities for collaboration; and view case studies, showing how successful businesses including Tata Steel, E.ON and Rolls Royce already benefit from working closely with HPC Midlands.
Researchers with a record of using high performance computing to solve industrially relevant problems will be on-hand to discuss what the facility is able to offer industry.
Dr Steven Kenny, Director of HPC Midlands said: “Since establishing HPC Midlands with the financial backing of the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, we have worked closely with academic colleagues and a range of industrial partners to refine the service to ensure that it meets business as well as academic needs. Now we are ready to invite small and large businesses with specialist computing requirements to come along and see how they can benefit from this world-class facility.”
