New Embedded Tech Support for Your Research

May 1, 2023

May 1, 2023

We’re launching our new Embedded Technical Support program with an inaugural Call for Proposals

The Embedded Technical Support program is designed to assist researchers in any discipline at Atlantic Canadian post-secondary institutions to adopt or improve their use of advanced computing techniques and resources in their research. 

These tools have the potential to accelerate discovery in almost any discipline. However, the expertise necessary to optimize code, successfully migrate workflows from a desktop to an HPC cluster, build a cloud platform, or simply explore the capabilities and benefits of advanced computing may not be readily available, especially in smaller projects.

This program pairs our technical experts with innovative projects that have high potential for success and impact, and that require advanced computing resources, programming support and/or in-depth technical expertise. Some examples of areas we can help are:

  • Code parallelization, profiling and optimization for HPC systems 
  • Scientific or data visualization
  • Data analytics
  • Workflow migration from the desktop to a cluster
  • Research portal creation on a cloud platform
  • Incorporation of advanced computing into research programs

Successful projects under this program are able to access focused and dedicated support from one of ACENET’s research consultants for a period of two to four months. During this period, the ACENET staff member will spend up to 50% of their time working on the project.

The current call opens 1 May, 2023, with a deadline for submissions of 12 June, 2023.
