AMs visit Supercomputing Wales

Members of the National Assembly for Wales’ Economy, Infrastructure and Skills Committee have visited the Supercomputing Wales data centre at Cardiff University, to gain an insight into the high-profile science and innovation taking place facilitated by the state-of-the-art facilities.

Much of the work being undertaken through Supercomputing Wales is aligned closely to areas of significant importance to the Welsh economy, including nano-scale materials and advanced engineering; energy and the environment; and life sciences and health.

Russell George AM, Chair of the Committee, said: “The Committee were pleased to be invited to Supercomputing Wales and would like to thank Cardiff University for hosting such an informative visit. Supercomputer Wales plays three vital roles in developing our economy. It helps to keep Welsh research cutting edge, allows our universities to train top class computer scientists and the computer power can be used by Welsh businesses and society to innovate. Facilities like this are a cornerstone of the future economy in Wales.”
