What is SES?

Find out about what we do & who we are

What is SES?

The Science and Engineering South Consortium brings together the universities of Oxford, Southampton, King’s College London, Queen Mary University of London, University College London and Imperial College London, creating the most powerful hub of research-intensive universities in the UK. Our members invest in high quality science, essential for the sustained development of world-leading research that makes a positive difference to the UK economy, our wellbeing and to the world around us.

Knowledge Sharing

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 through the spread of knowledge.

Emerald

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.

Training

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.

Material Progress – and How to Achieve It

| Advanced materials, Bioscience and medicine, Energy and climate change, Popular | No Comments
In every sense, we live in a material world and the drive to develop smarter, lighter, more versatile and resilient materials shows no sign of decelerating. Whether designed to withstand brutal operating environments, save energy or bring life-saving medical advances within reach, there’s a constant thirst for the next generation of game-changers – and the UCL Institute for Materials Discovery (IMD) is delivering the innovation, imagination and inspiration needed to succeed. Under its Director, Professor Kwang-Leong Choy, and with a growing network of collaborators – including other SES members plus partners worldwide – the IMD is already an established institute...

Modelling ‘Magic’: the Search for Nanocatalysts

| Advanced materials, Energy and climate change, Just Added | No Comments
The drive to design new materials with surprising capabilities is a fast-moving frontier of research – and computers are well-established as a crucial tool in accelerating progress. The TOUCAN collaboration, including SES members King’s College London, the University of Oxford and University College London, has shown how modelling & simulation can aid the design of nanoscale catalysts capable of speeding up key chemical reactions used in a range of industrial processes. Harnessing the skills of researchers such as Dr Francesca Baletto of King’s, TOUCAN has taken the first steps on a journey that could see industry develop remarkable new catalysts...

The Data Dialogue: At War with Data

| News, Recommended | No Comments
Cyber security, open source intelligence, web science, bioinformatics and crime science…all modern and relevant terms in the UK research landscape, and all with one thing in common: Data. Why are researchers interested in accessing publicly available data? What are they doing with anonymised, confidential data? How can open data provide us with intelligence? How can data from one field of research be used in another? This Unique finale to The Data Dialogue, At War with Data, provided Early Career Researchers from a range of disciplines with the tools and knowledge to approach the subject of research data from a wider point of view....
