Support & Collaborations
DL_POLY_4 is a UK flagship project. The authors provide support, expertise and development effort nationally on a collaborative basis provided funding is available. UK-wide workshops are the common way of dissemination of training and expertise. These are organised in collaboration with the authors and funded by the hosting organisation, such as an academic institution, Research Council (including STFC) or an academic community (such as CCP5, PRACE, etc.).
International (overseas) academic users are welcome to attend DL_POLY training workshops in the UK. However, UK hosting institutions may charge attendees that are not UK based academic researchers. International as well as UK based reserchers will find that the
