Resource Allocation Panel (RAP): access to ARCHER (spring 2017)

EPSRC offers access to ARCHER through calls for proposals to the Resource Allocation Panel (RAP). Users can request significant amounts (>1,000kAUs or >66,667 ARCHER core hours) of computing resource over a maximum one-year period. The aim of this call is to provide access to our national state-of-the-art high performance computing facility for proposals of high scientific quality that would benefit from ARCHER.

A non-exclusive list of eligible projects includes:

  • Short computational projects that do not warrant a full grant application
  • UK led collaborative projects with international and/or industry partners
  • Joint applications from students (as Co-I) with proven HPC experience (e.g. a successfully completed instant access project) and their PIs
  • Projects that link consecutive standard grant applications or that aid the preparation of a grant or fellowship application
  • Extended feasibility studies and trialling application developments at scale

Further information on ARCHER can be found at the Introduction to ARCHER page.
