Find out about what we do & who we are

What is SES?

The Science and Engineering South Consortium brings together the universities of Cambridge, Oxford, Southampton, UCL and Imperial, creating the most powerful hub of research-intensive universities in the UK. Our institutions invest in high quality science, essential for the sustained development of world-leading research that makes a positive difference to our health, our wellbeing, and to the world around us.

Data Management

Whether we’re supporting researchers to effectively manage their data, providing opportunity to network or creating transparency in equipment sharing, SES is improving standards for you and encouraging development.


Our GPU cluster provides an alternative capability to traditional HPC systems and is open to academics and business. In a cost-benefit driven world, the need to collaborate exists between institutions and with innovative industries of all sizes.


Ongoing knowledge sharing is essential across HPC and Research Data Managemnt. We are pleased to host original networking and development events with recognised academics and industry professionals. Visit Events for more information.



Solving unsteady fluid flows with Hyperfluxt

| Innovation and infrastructure, News, Popular, Technology and interconnectivity | No Comments
An Innovate UK- and EPSRC-funded project called Hyperflux is bringing together industry and academia to tackle the problem of modeling unsteady fluid flow. Peter Vincent, Senior Lecturer and EPSRC Fellow in the department of Aeronautics at Imperial College London, heads up the academic side of this project. His team is working with engineers at CFD company Zenotech and CFMS, an independent centre for modelling and simulation based at the Bristol & Bath Science Park, to create a commercial product called Hyperflux, which will help industry to model these unsteady flows. As of early 2015, the team has already managed the development and rolling...

Imaging Software Bring the Brain into Fuller Focus

| Bioscience and medicine, Just Added | No Comments
Innovative software developed at the Oxford Centre for Functional MRI of the Brain (FMRIB) is on track to improve our understanding of the mind’s innermost wirings – opening up exciting possibilities in neuroscience. Funded by the University of Oxford and the Human Connectome Project (see below), a team including research student Moisés Hernández Fernández and research fellow Dr Stamatios Sotiropoulos has developed parallel computation algorithms that vastly accelerate the processing of Data Mountains generated by a key medical imaging technology. This breakthrough, in which the Emerald supercomputer funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) has played a...



Combined codes for chemistry research

| Bioscience and medicine, Recommended | No Comments
Andrew Logsdail, Postdoc to Richard Catlow, Head of the MAPs facility with the Department of Chemistry at UCL, has been using the Iridis distributed memory computing cluster to help develop new methodologies for chemistry calculations. Logsdail’s team focus on research into catalysis and chemistry defects, with a view to creating better software to be used in the development of tools such as catalytic converters, and photovoltaic and photocatalytic cells as used in solar power. To do so, they perform vast calculations, and need software that can handle their needs. Their aim has therefore been to integrate their own code –...
