HPC Wales Research and Innovation Projects Fund
13 May 2013
High Performance Computing (HPC) Wales is the £40M pan-Wales project that is building a state-of-the-art high performance computing infrastructure and associated support.
HPC Wales has announced its new Research and Innovation Projects Fund – a fund of £300,000 to support around 20 research projects that would benefit from the power of supercomputing technology.
The Research and Innovation Projects Fund aims to provide university researchers with the chance to deliver development-oriented projects, and businesses the opportunity to tap into the right academic expertise.
HPC Wales is now accepting proposals based on collaborations between a Convergence Area, Small or Medium Enterprise and Cardiff University. HPC Wales will fund up to 25% of the direct cost of the staff employed on the project for up to 12 months.
This is a great opportunity for academics in Wales to work on collaborative projects of up to one year duration.
The closing date for applications to the Research and Innovation Projects Fund is 31st May 2013. Applications must be made using the HPC Wales Application Form, available on request by contacting Cardiff’s HPC Wales Training and Outreach Mentor, Luke Davies - firstname.lastname@example.org.
