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.

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.

Deep in Thought: How ‘Brainy’ Computers Are Changing Our Lives

| Bioscience and medicine, Just Added, Popular, The Data Revolution | No Comments
The Fourth Industrial Revolution is here – and together with technologies such as robotics and quantum computing, Artificial Intelligence (AI) is at the heart of this awesome new age of progress and possibilities. Deep learning is a great example. Harnessing computer algorithms inspired by how the brain works, this fast-growing field of AI makes it possible to analyse vast amounts of data and detect patterns and features there – generating insights that can improve and protect lives in areas as diverse as medicine, transport and anti-terrorism. UCL is just one of the SES members currently working at deep learning’s cutting...

The Data Dialogue: At War with Data

| Events, 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....
