The Research Cluster Grant

The Silicon Mechanics Research Cluster Grant is a program designed to jumpstart research efforts where access to high-performance computing was previously limited, outdated or not available. Each year the awarded clusters drive collaboration within institutions through access to the latest high-performance and GPU technologies.
