Prof Maxim Fedorov of the Department of Physics at the University of Strathclyde has been awarded a 30M core-hour international supercomputer grant through the European PRACE program.

The project is entitled “Interfacial Structure and Solvation Dynamics in Ionic Liquids” and is a collaborative project with researchers from Estonia (University of Tartu) and France (Ecole Normale Supérieure (ENS) in Paris).

The grant gives a years access to one of the largest HPC facilities in Europe (HORNET) which is located in Stuttgart, Germany. HORNET is operated by HLRS, a leading provider of world-class HPC resources for scientific and industrial research activities (for more information see https://www.hlrs.de/organization/).

This grant will allow Prof Fedorov and his research team to build on the successful computational research programme undertaken on ARCHIE-WeSt.
