The HPC Team

Until 2016, the HPC team was only a subset of the Computing Centre Operations team. With the transition to the Shared ICT Services Centre in 2017, the HPC team emerged as a separate and uniquely defined group of people. New members have been hired and today we are very proud to present a true and highly skilled HPC team!
