The Linkage Infrastructure, Equipment and Facilities application is led by Professor Evatt Hawkes from the School of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering at the University of New South Wales. It brings together a consortium of fifteen Chief Investigators, drawn from eight Intersect member universities, as representative of the over 900 researchers who accessed HPC through the Intersect partnership with the National Computational Infrastructure (NCI) in 2018.
Peak supercomputing capability enables simulations of unprecedented scale and speed and unlocks the potential of data, thereby offering major opportunities for discovery and innovation. Successful application will enable leading researchers across the member universities of Intersect to capitalise on these opportunities by continuing their access to the National Computational Infrastructure (NCI) peak facilities. Intersect has supplied, operated, and brokered supercomputing for its members since inception over 10 years ago, both independently and in partnership with NCI.
