EPSRC commits over £3.5 million of support for collaborative computational projects

Collaborative Computational Projects (CCPs) aim to bring particular research communities together and help them develop computational tools and techniques to support their research through large-scale software development projects, maintenance, distribution, training and user support. 

EPSRC has recently refreshed its support for CCPs, ensuring that those communities undertaking cutting edge computational science in the UK are supported. Computational support for these projects is provided by the Computational Science and Engineering Department (CSED) at Daresbury Science and Innovation Centre. EPSRC is also providing direct funding for networking activities and research projects.Oxford are leads or co-leads of 4 of the new CCPs and took 40% of the funding.

The full list of collaborative computational projects is below. You can follow the links in the table for more information, or to contact the CCP directly.
