Social scientists want to be able to safely analyse confidential data. Together with Statistics Netherlands (CBS), we developed a virtual environment that allows researchers to use the national supercomputer.
eXploRing VR, AR and MR
Virtual reality, augmented reality en mixed reality offer many opportunies for research and education. What are the possibilities?
CompBioMed is focussed on the use and development of computational methods for biomedical applications. The cutting edge of computational biomedicine harnesses computer simulations that are conducted on massively powerful supercomputers. The tremendous power of these machines allows larger and more complex biological systems to be simulated, yielding better, more accurate, and more meaningful output. SURF is one of the partners in this European project.
Access to European systems
PRACE: access to the fastest systems in Europe
PRACE gives top researchers access to the fastest systems in Europe, enabling the Netherlands to continue to compete with countries such as China.
EuroCC and CASTIEL are building a European network of 33 national high-performance computing (HPC) competence centres, including SURF. The projects aim to bridge differences in HPC skills and promote cooperation and adoption of best practices.
