Edinburgh Parallel Computing Centre (EPCC)
“EPCC is Europe’s premier supercomputing centre and is based at The University of Edinburgh. Since its inception in 1990, EPCC has gained an enviable reputation for leading-edge capability in all aspects of High Performance Computing (HPC), Big Data and novel computing. The Centre is built on three key foundations: the hosting, provision and management of HPC and data facilities for British and European academia and business; research and consultancy to support the computing activities of those organisations; and a unique project-based consultancy activity that provides bespoke data analytics and HPC software solutions to industry and commerce. We have a broad customer base that extends across the Manufacturing, General Engineering, Life Sciences and Healthcare, Financial Services, Oil and Gas, and Energy sectors.
Our facilities and expertise are unmatched in Europe. With some 80 highly qualified permanent staff, EPCC has an exceptional pool of talent. We have leveraged these resources in helping over 700 industrial organisations benefit from HPC and Big Data over the last 25 years. Our projects are all run to professional project management standards (PRINCE2). We work on projects with external partners under a variety of funding models: UK research council funded, EC funded and direct funding from industry. “
