Scientists at The University of Manchester have used N8 HPC, to simulate for the first time ever how one of the world’s largest dinosaurs, Argentinosaurus, would have walked.
The Technology Strategy Board, Invest Northern Ireland (Invest NI) and the Highlands and Islands Enterprise (HIE) are to invest up to £2.75m in collaborative feasibility studies to stimulate technology inspired ideas across four key technology areas: Read More
- 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
Accessing N8 HPC
N8 HPC facilites are available to all researchers based at N8 institutions subject to a light weight peer review. For more details on how to access the facility, please see "Getting Started".
