I am pleased to report that by the end of September High Performance Computing (HPC) Wales had achieved over 60 collaborative projects with businesses and academics across Wales from a variety of sectors including: energy and environment, creative industries, health, engineering, finance and ICT. In addition, over 800 individuals had either participated in a project or received training from HPC Wales.
We have a large number of HPC projects in the pipeline and a rapidly increasing number of individuals wanting to learn more about high performance computing, which is most encouraging.
At the end of October, we held a workshop in London that gathered HPC centres from around the UK along with the Technology Strategy Board (TSB) and the European and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) to start to articulate how HPC Centres can further support the uptake of high performance computing amongst SMEs.
It is vital that we work together to support industry in the UK and overcome the barriers to HPC usage, helping businesses become competitive internationally and building on the UKs reputation for research and innovation.
