Organization profile

EPCC is the UK’s premier supercomputing centre, renowned internationally for innovation and leading-edge research. Since its inception in 1990, EPCC has gained an enviable reputation for leading-edge capability in all aspects of HPC, data analytics and novel computing. EPCC is built on three key foundations: the hosting, provision and management of high performance HPC and data facilities for British and European academia and business; research and consultancy to support the computing activities of those organisations; and the creation of novel and high-performance software solutions.

Building strong collaborations with key HPC players further reinforces EPCC’s leadership position. Through our involvement with major programmes and collaborations such as the Edinburgh and South East Scotland City Region Deal, we are proactively accelerating the adoption and value of HPC across a range of sectors.

Our facilities and expertise are unmatched in Europe. We host national supercomputing services such as ARCHER2 and, with over 110 highly qualified permanent staff, have an exceptional pool of talent. Our engineers and technical staff have a balanced blend of theoretical, academic and practical knowledge and many have worked in industry before joining EPCC.
