The new £31million world-class Computational Science facility will act as a beacon for research collaborations and will look to attract leading researchers to Wales, placing Swansea at the heart of a thriving regional ecosystem of digital companies and research.
The Computational Foundry is backed by £17m from the European Regional Development Fund and will drive research into computational and mathematical sciences and make Wales a global destination for computational scientists and industrial partners.
The University’s vision is to nurture and grow a dedicated community of computational and mathematical scientists who pursue transformative research and believe that better computational science is vital in building a progressive world: socially, economically, culturally, philosophically and intellectually.
The expansion will enable computational science at Swansea to grow and deliver new, meaningful and lucrative research, alongside existing teaching and outreach activity.
*Building work on the Foundry has already begun with occupation from September 2018.
