Abstract / Description of output

Industry in the United Kingdom has a long history of using modeling and simulation and the government has, since the 1990s, encouraged collaboration between industry and academia through a number of programs with varying levels of success and commitment. Despite the reticence with which many U.K. politicians approach Europe, the United Kingdom has also been a key leader in several large European industry HPC programs such as the HPCN TTN (High-Performance Computing and Networking Technology Transfer Node) program and most recently the FORTISSIMO project.
