Access to High Performance Computing facilities 2024

Please be advised EPSRC, on behalf of the UKRI Digital Research Infrastructure (DRI), has launched an opportunity on the UKRI Funding Service for access to high performance computing facilities which STFC and other communities may like to apply to.

This opportunity provides an open and flexible route to computational support for high quality projects across the entire UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) remit.

The scope of the call includes but not limited to:

  • extended feasibility or proof of concept studies (at a larger scale than is possible in pump priming projects)
  • computational projects which may not warrant a full grant application
  • computational projects linking consecutive grant applications or aiding the preparation of a full grant or fellowship application
  • large amounts of compute for ambitious, computationally intensive simulations and calculations
  • collaborations with industrial and international partners
  • increase the development of computational science skills, such as allowing students to work jointly with project leads to achieve the aims of the proposed research, leading to improved software and coding skills, and career paths

We particularly encourage applications that:

  • involve early career researchers
  • onboard and train new users
  • significantly push the boundaries in computational research using High Performance Computing (HPC) in your field

This application process is purely for computing resources for up to 12 months. No funding is available to successful applicants.

You must be based at a UK research organisation eligible for UKRI funding.

The opportunity closes on 23 April 2024 4:00pm UK time.

A webinar will be held on 12 March 2024 at 11:00am
