The National Institute for Computational Science - NICS
The National Institute for Computational Sciences (NICS) at the University of Tennessee is a product of a $65M Track 2B award by the National Science Foundation. The mission of NICS is to enable the scientific discoveries of researchers nationwide by providing leading- edge computational resources and education, outreach and training for under-represented groups.
NICS advances scientific discovery and state-of-the-art research and engineering and furthers knowledge of computational modelling and simulation by taking full advantage of petascale and beyond computers. Also, NICS promotes the education of new generation scientists and engineers in the application of computational modelling and simulation to answer the most challenging scientific and engineering problems.
Links to the health workforce crisis
NICS is currently interested in using their computing capability and resources to engage with other research groups that have models or simulations to help solving the health workforce crisis.
