Supercomputing Wales celebrates official launch at Senedd

Assembly Members, representatives from Cardiff, Swansea, Bangor and Aberystwyth universities and representatives from the suppliers Dell EMC and Atos celebrated the official launch of Supercomputing Wales at the Senedd in Cardiff Bay on Thursday 11 October.

Research Software Engineers (RSEs) from the consortium universities displayed posters at the event, detailing the work they are conducting using the supercomputing facilities, and delegates were provided with a selection of Case Studies.

The £15m programme has been funded with £9m through the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) through the Welsh Government, which has been matched by a multi-million-pound investment from the university partners.

Professor Roger Whitaker, Academic Director for Supercomputing Wales said: “Supercomputing Wales will unlock the world-class research capabilities we have here in Wales, placing the country on a firm competitive footing worldwide.”
