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.

​EPSRC Call for Collaborative Computational Projects: Community Building, Networking and Core Computational Science Support

Collaborative Computational Projects (CCPs) are inclusive, community-wide initiatives bringing together engineering and physical sciences researchers and research software development expertise. CCPs comprise researchers and developers who collaborate on large-scale scientific software development projects, maintenance, distribution, training, and user support. They provide a focal point for communities to identify their scientific software requirements and take a strategic approach to software support in a particular field.

This call is to support a further cohort of CCPs, to underpin research and research communities within the EPSRC remit. These CCPs will contribute to the development of innovative, sustainable and robust software that will ensure researchers have the e-infrastructure and skills required to undertake world-leading research, both now and in the future. Core computational science support, provided by STFC’s Computational Science Centre for Research Communities (CoSeC), is available to CCPs through this call.

Applications are invited from existing CCPs (where there remains scientific software requirements) and new CCPs in fields where this demand is significant and currently unmet. The call is open until 10 October 2019.
