Simon Cox and Oz Parchment have secured £3.6M from EPSRC in a consortium with Oxford, Bristol and UCL for computing resource consisting of a £1.7M upgrade to Iridis and £1M of GPU resource (to be housed at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory) along with associated running costs and support staff. This will be of considerable interest to DE researchers, and also to our colleagues in the Computational Imaging USRG and the Computational Modelling Group. The funding derives from the BIS strategic investment in UK e-infrastructure.
