Doors Open Day: EPCC

Welcome to EPCC's virtual Doors Open Day!

EPCC provides supercomputing and data services to industry and academia. We oversee a unique collection of leading-edge high-performance computing (HPC) systems and major data resources which are housed at the University of Edinburgh’s Advanced Computing Facility, a secure state-of-the-art building on the outskirts of Edinburgh. We are the UK’s only high-performance computing centre with a global reputation, and our facilities and expertise are unmatched in Europe.

Software plays a crucial role in research. The Software Sustainability Institute, based in the Bayes Centre, works to upskill researchers in the development and use of better software to enable better research. The Institute’s Research Director, Dr Caroline Jay, introduces the Institute’s background and goals, while Dr Edward Wallace gives a researcher’s perspective on how working with the Institute has helped his work.
