Loughborough University Vice-Chancellor, Professor Bob Allison, is introduced to HPC Midlands

A new supercomputing facility at Loughborough University will be made available to businesses to drive innovation.

HPC Midlands, based at the university’s Science and Enterprise Park, provides state-of-the-art e-infrastructure for research and industry will hold an open day on March 20 to allow companies to find out how access to the centre’s supercomputer could benefit their business.

The 3,000 core supercomputer at the heart of HPC Midlands can process vast quantities of data and undertake complex calculations and the university believes it has the potential to act as a catalyst for breakthroughs across a wide range of sectors including bio-informatics, engineering, finance, manufacturing, power generation, molecular modelling, science, and weather forecasting.

Dr Steven Kenny, Director of HPC Midlands said: “Since establishing HPC Midlands with the financial backing of the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, we have worked closely with academic colleagues and a range of industrial partners to refine the service to ensure that it meets business as well as academic needs.

“Now we are ready to invite small and large businesses with specialist computing requirements to come along and see how they can benefit from this world-class facility.”

The launch event will give delegates the chance to meet the team behind HPC Midlands; explore opportunities for collaboration; and view case studies, showing how successful businesses including Tata Steel, E.ON and Rolls Royce already benefit from working closely with HPC Midlands.

Researchers with a record of using high performance computing to solve industrially relevant problems will be on-hand to discuss what the facility is able to offer industry.

More information about the event including how to register can be found at www.lboro.ac.uk/microsites/hpc
