Accessing ASCR Facilities

Industrial Users

Industrial users of ASCR facilities stimulate innovation, promote U.S. competitiveness, and help maximize the public benefit of ASCR facilities. ASCR facilities are open to industry through the ASCR Facilities access mechanisms. These access mechanisms enable innovation and expand the impact of HPC in industry by providing awardees with computing time and expert assistance in HPC pilot studies, proof-of-concept trials, and validation of simulations at scale. See below for industry success stories from ASCR facilities.

Building on past success and experience with industrial users, ASCR centers continue to promote and facilitate industrial access to ASCR facilities. Industry users of ASCR facilities often have unique requirements from university and national laboratory counterparts, including I.P considerations, proprietary codes, and different user support needs. Additionally ASCR facilities are at the cutting edge of multiple digital technologies and architectures. To help industry navigate the breadth of ASCR capabilities, each facility has established an Industrial User Point of Contact and recommended landing page for industrial users.
