On Friday the 23rd of May, High Performance Computing (HPC) Wales will launch their new supercomputing facility, situated in west Wales at the Bridge Innovation Centre (BIC), Pembroke Dock.
The event, run in collaboration with Pembrokeshire Council, Pembrokeshire College and the BIC will highlight the opportunities available to Businesses (and especially SMEs) and academics in West Wales through collaboration, knowledge transfer and access to the UK’s largest distributed supercomputing network.
Starting at 10am, there is a full and varied agenda for the day. The facility will be officially opened by Joyce Watson, Assembly Member for Mid and West Wales, and attendees will have the opportunity to hear about how businesses in Wales have benefitted at little or no cost from using HPC and the support available from Government, the Council and the College. In addition, there will be a tour of the facility and product and software demonstrations and 1-2-1 meetings with the organisers.
HPC Wales is a partnership between the Universities in Wales, part funded by the European Regional Development Fund through the Welsh Government, aimed at powering the success of businesses and research, building skills to enhance Wales’ knowledge economy, and speeding up the delivery of new products and services enabling better competitive advantage.
With state of the art equipment housed at the University of Wales Dylan Thomas Centre in Swansea, HPC Wales is host to the UK’s largest distributed supercomputing network and offers access to some of the most advanced computing technology in the world.
