We are creating a unified UKRI website that brings together the existing research council, Innovate UK and Research England websites.
If you would like to be involved in its development let us know.

Hartree Centre - Case studies

High performance computing, big data analytics and cognitive technologies are changing the way many industries think about innovation. From designing the next supercar to formulating better shampoos and detergents, our reputation for excellence in data intensive services attracts businesses from across a broad range of sectors.

We’re enabling companies of all sizes to tackle diverse challenges using the latest developments in supercomputing, with many returning again and again with new projects when they experience the value this insight provides to their business or project.
