We are pleased to announce the membership of the N8 HPC Advisory Board. Our advisory board consists of industry representatives from various sectors including multi-nationals and SME’s who will advise on N8 HPC industrial activities. We have selected individuals with a proven record in HPC and / or business development in order to take advantage of their expertise to guide N8 HPC to the next level.
Dr Lee Margetts recently represented N8 HPC on a visit of HPC experts to the US to identify areas for collaboration. A report of their findings is now available.
The first of our industrial case studies has been published. Learn how the BBC collaborated with N8 HPC to use our skills and resources to slash the processing time of a large music database. A fantastic example of how N8 HPC is working with industry to tackle their issues.
- seed engagement between industry and academia around research using e-infrastructure
- develop skills in the use of e-Infrastructure across the N8 partnership
