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 and Warwick.
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 5 million core hours are available each quarter for Nottingham researchers.
Call for applications are currently closed
HPC Midlands Plus system is due to be replaced in the first half of 2021.
An announcement about arrangements to future access will be made once the system is ready for deployment.
