Aalborg University (AAU) in northern Jutland has received a grant from the Danish Centre for Scientific Computing to establish a supercomputing facility. The power of the computer collectively corresponds to 400 CPUs and 400-800 gigabyte RAM, and the machine is scheduled to be ready for action in October.
 
Frede Blaabjerg, dean of AAU's Faculty of Engineering, Science and Medicine says: "To be able to keep AAU ahead with new research, it is important for us to have access to large scientific computing installations. The new equipment will for example be used for conducting research in electromagnetic problems in telecommunication, combustion of biomass, and for composite materials for wind turbines."
 
AAU offers more than 70 courses in engineering, science and medicine, humanities and social sciences. The number of students is close to 14,000, and the budget is approx. DKK 1.4 billion (USD 252 m). The university employs 1200 faculty and 800 administrative and technical staff. The news was reported by ComOn.
