What is SES?

The Science and Engineering South Consortium brings together the universities of Oxford, Cambridge, 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.

Compute

SES institutions have access to regional, national and international supercomputing systems. In addition to the SES Tier-2 HPC systems, HPC-UK provides information on national HPC facilities, access and training.

Research Data

We’re focussed on supporting and furthering all aspects of the research data cycle, from data curation and management to transfer and storage. To find out more, visit our training and Research Data Transfer Zone pages.

SES institutions to benefit from £14 million for HPC services

| Innovation and infrastructure, News, Popular | No Comments

Researchers across the Science and Engineering South Consortium are to share the benefits of a £30m investment in advanced supercomputing services. The funding will support seven High Performance Computing (HPC) services run by universities from across the UK, including the SES members UCL, Oxford and Cambridge. Together, the three HPC services led by SES institutions will receive £14 million of the funding from the Engineering and Physical Science Research Council.

Fibre-optics World Record is No Hollow Victory

| Innovation and infrastructure, Recommended, Technology and interconnectivity, The Data Revolution | No Comments

A whole array of game-changing, life-shaping technologies, from long-distance telecommunications to laser surgery, have a key component in common: fibre optics that carry pulses of light to their destination at incredible speed. A University of Southampton team are now focusing on the next big step forward – hollow-core fibres (HCFs) – and last year shattered a longstanding world record to push the capabilities of these to a new level.
