The University supports non-grant-funded computational research activities on the Nimbus cloud supercomputer.
- initial proof-of-concept studies
- feasibility tests and seed corn projects
- short research projects, including PhD student projects
Departmental Research Computing budgets
Small and medium sized research projects are funded by your department's research computing budget. If funds are available, your local HPC budget should be used as the first point of call to cover the cost of your research.
If your department can't cover your computational costs, you can apply for a University Research Computing Accelerator Award.
Speak to your Research Computing Champion to discuss your computational needs and funding opportunities.
University Accelerator Awards
If your department can't cover the cost of your research, you can apply for a University Research Computing Accelerator Award.
Extensive use of computing resources
The costs of extensive use of computational resources should be covered by external grant funding. The RIS Research Development team and the Research Computing group can help you secure the funding you need for your research.
