CECAM-UK Node at Daresbury Laboratory
06 Feb 2019



Aiming to provide scientific and engineering applications, support for collaborative computational and experimental programs, and the development of software engineering for frontier scientific codes.









The CECAM node at Daresbury Laboratory is hosted by STFC's Scientific Computing Department (SCD). The computational research interests and capabilities are among others:

  • Data intensive computing, Numerical analysis, Cognitive computing, and Software engineering
  • Multiscale modelling in physics, chemistry, materials science, life sciences, and engineering
  • Computational modelling in support of STFC experimental programmes
  • Computational modelling support of ​UK scientific community through Collaborative Computational Projects under the Computational Science Centre for Research Comunities (CoSeC)
