N8 HPC is an EPSRC funded initiative involving the N8 Research Partnership. The aims are to:

  • seed engagement between industry and academia around research using e-infrastructure
  • develop skills in the use of e-Infrastructure across the N8 partnership
  • share the asset of skills and equipment across the N8 partnership via the facilitation of networks of people

The initial investment will provide a focus for the aims above, comprising:

  • Centre - a distributed team of experts to help with optimising time-to-solution and industrial engagement

  • Facilities - a Tier 2 SGI 5,000+ core high performance computing facility

A key aspect of N8 HPC is industrial collaborations and we invite those with potential interest to contact us.
