Open workshop: Tell us what compute resources you need

24 Feb 2020

Research Lifecycle Programme invites researchers to say what data storage, processing power and memory would benefit their research

The Research Lifecycle Programme’s compute capacity and resources project holds open workshops each year to allow the research community to tell us what compute resources they need, in order to allocate our annual funds accordingly.

Compute resources include data storage, processing power and memory required to carry out data processing, modelling and simulations, and other research methods.

The funding can be used for on-site compute resources and also public Cloud, for example Amazon Web Services and other formats.

Based on last year’s feedback from the research community, we invested £260,000 into onsite hardware, including Graphic Processing Units (GPUs) and very high memory compute resources. We would like to hear from the research community again to find out what you would like us to spend this year’s funding on.

Researchers of any level are welcome to attend and this may be of particular interest to those doing computationally intensive research (eg modelling, simulation, data processing etc.).

Two workshops will be held and you can register to attend below:

If you can’t make any of these workshops and want to let us know your requirements, please email:
