CoSeC - Computational Science Centre for Research Communities
17 Aug 2017






​​"Partnerships in research software"


The Computational Science Centre for Research Communities (CoSeC) supports the advancement of scientific research by developing and strengthening software to analyse and solve increasingly complex problems in multiple disciplines - physics, chemistry, life sciences, engineering, and more.

Funded by EPSRC, MRC, and BBSRC, we also provide a hub for exchanging knowledge and expertise through training and outreach. Long-term partnerships and collaborations with universities and other research establishments are at the heart of what we do. Together, we convey longevity to the software and expertise that, alongside  continued advancement of computational hardware and the nurturing of strong collaborations, provide what is necessary  for scientific communities to flourish.
