Research, Education, & Outreach Group

The Research Education and Outreach Working Group is made up of representatives from each of the founding universities. The working group was formed to maximize the impact of the facility on current research, support the new collaborations that the facility makes possible, and encourage the submission of collaborative proposals for computationally intensive research and infrastructure.

Program Management Group

The Program Management group works with MGHPCC staff to ensure that business and technical operations for the facility work smoothly, and the facility is prepared to meet current and future business and infrastructure needs. Considerations include security, shared network infrastructure, space and power utilization, energy efficiency, budgeting, and cost allocation.
