Massachusetts research universities are world leaders in computational research for physical science, life science, computer science and many other disciplines. In the past research had taken place within individual universities and had been limited by the capacity of their respective campuses. The MGHPCC is providing  a path to grow university research computing significantly beyond what is possible in the Commonwealth and in New England today.

    The MGHPCC Seed Grant Program


    2012 Seed Fund Recipients

    In the past two years, the MGHPCC Consortium has run seed grant programs to stimulate novel collaborative research activities addressing significant HPC challenges. Research seed projects typically address large, complex problems, that are beyond any single academic institution or discipline. Since its inception these have included applications in the life, environment, health, natural and social sciences as well as mathematics. The program also sponsors workshops intended to promote and build on collaborations within the local research community.
