Trilateral Collaboration Yields Supercomputer Access to Speed Innovation

Scientists and engineers will have free access to the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute’s (RPI) supercomputer over the next three years thanks to a grant from the New York State Foundation for Science, Technology and Innovation.  The computer was built through a collaborative effort between RPI, the New York state government, and the IBM Corporation. 

A product of triple helix collaboration, the supercomputer will open up many more future opportunities by allowing researchers to complete simulations and calculations in a fraction of the time.  All three sectors will benefit from this collaboration as NYSTAR Executive Director Ed Reinfurt said, “by increasing the speed in which they can innovate.”
