Access through EPSRC grants
On J-eS, access can be requested by including Cirrus costs on a standard EPSRC grant application.
A completed Grant/Open Access Technical Assessment (TA) must be uploaded along with the application as a supporting document.
Cirrus should be added to EPSRC Je-S applications in the following way
- Go to the “Research Council Facilities” section
- Select the facility “Other” from the drop down menu, use “Cirrus (Tier-2 HPC)” as the name of the facility in the “Proposed Usage box” 3.The “Units” text box should contain the number of Core-h you are requesting along with the unit specifier, e.g. “20000 Core-h”
- The notional cost of access to the facility should be included in the access costs text box. (This is the number you calculate from your Core-h number and the cost per Core-h.)
Cost of access to Cirrus is still being finalised, if you wish to include Cirrus on an EPSRC grant then please contact the Cirrus Helpdesk.
Access through other grant-awarding bodies
Cirrus costs can be included in applications from other grant awarding bodies.
You should complete a Grant/Open Access Technical Assessment (TA) form and send to the Cirrus Helpdesk ahead of your proposal submission. The completed TA form can then be included along with your application as required.
Cost of access to Cirrus is still being finalised, if you wish to include Cirrus on a grant application then please contact the Cirrus Helpdesk.
We would normally expect Grant Access applications to be around 500,000 - 2,000,000 Core-h per annum but we do have larger projects than this. Please contact the Cirrus Helpdesk to discuss if you have larger requirements.
