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.


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.


Powering Up Research: The MMM Hub

| Advanced materials, Events, Just Added, Popular | No Comments
The significance of High Performance Computing in materials research has recently been recognised by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) in the award of £4 million to a consortium of partners to create a new national supercomputing centre, the Materials and Molecular Modelling Hub. The HPC facility that the MMM Hub hosts is known as Thomas, a 17,000 core machine designed to support small to medium sized capacity computing focusing on materials and molecular modelling. The launch of this Tier 2 supercomputer on the 14 September was designed to raise awareness amongst the entire UK Materials and Molecular Modelling community...

Aiding Unborn Babies: the new MRI imaging techniques helping to diagnose and treat Join the doctors and staff at King’s College London/Guy’s and St. Thomas’ Hospital. They discuss with SES how new MRI imaging techniques and collaborative research are helping to diagnose unborn babies and provide better treatment options.


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....
