HPC Midlands Plus

Tier 2 HPC centre with a focus on Engineering and Physical Sciences, funded by EPSRC.



About the service

The University is part of a regional HPC consortium consisting of the Universities of Aston, Birmingham, Leicester, Loughborough, Nottingham, Queen Mary, Warwick and Coventry.

Who is the service for?

Funded by a £3.2 million pound grant from the EPSRC and aimed at users whose research falls within the EPSRC’s remit, this facility aims to offer a higher capability system to users whose needs aren’t met by their home university’s own provision.

How do I access the service?

Access to this resource is via a quarterly call for applications. Approximately 7 million core hours are available each quarter for Nottingham researchers.

 To apply, please visit our HPC Midlands Plus SharePoint Page.
