We focus our activities on research and development in the technology and application domains for parallel and distributed computations. With more than 30 academics, researchers, and PhD students the cluster provides rich and dynamic environment with a large number of internal and external research contacts and collaborative projects.

On a national and European level, we have made a number of key contributions with a long record of successful research grants and initiatives while also contributing directly to the Faculty’s postgraduate programmes. The cluster operates well developed state-of-the-art computing facilities and has been a partner site of the UK National Grid Service since 2006.
