XSEDE Project Receives Additional Funding

Massive project will continue to support scientific computing and HPC research through August 2022.

The US National Science Foundation has awarded another year of funding to the Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Project (XSEDE). The $21.8M, 12-month grant will extend operations until August 22, 2022.

XSEDE is an important presence within the US HPC community, offering HPC cycles, training, applications, science gateways, and other resources to qualifying projects. According to XSEDE program directory John Town, “We are very pleased to have been awarded this extension of the XEDE project by the NSF. It is a testament to the success XSEDE has exhibited in supporting the national research community spanning a wide range of domains, and we look forward to continuing to enable researchers to discover more with XSEDE.”
