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.

Improving Research Workflows by Enabling High-speed Data Transfers

| Events, Just Added, The Data Revolution | No Comments
With the volume of data generated from research increasing rapidly and affecting a wider variety of fields and disciplines than ever before, the requirement for transferring large volumes of data is now widespread. One of the ways that institutions are aiming to satisfy this need is to reduce the network impediments that affect the end-to-end speed at which research data can be transferred between the lab, computational and storage facilities. The University of Southampton, as a member of the Science & Engineering South Consortium (SES) and in partnership with Jisc and Diamond Light Source, has been running a pilot project...

Getting from A to B How High-speed Data Transfer Could Power Science Dr. Richard Boardman from the µ-VIS Centre for Computed Tomography (an X-Ray Imaging Centre providing support to the Engineering, Biomedical, Environmental and Archaeological Sciences at the University of Southampton) discuses how improving institutional data transfer speeds could lead to more efficient research. The pilot project setup by The University of Southampton, Diamond Light Source, the Science and Engineering South Consortium and Jisc was recently showcased in a workshop event at the University of Southampton’s Boldrewood campus.
