Partner on Proposals

The mission of Purdue's ITaP Research Computing staff is to support and advance research discoveries at Purdue through partnerships with faculty and research groups. Our research scientists collaborate with faculty on grant proposals and support them by providing cyberinfrastructure solutions to funded projects.

Our staff take on roles in proposals including (but not limited to) consulting on better utilization of high performance computing, providing data-intensive and high-throughput computing resources, improving scientific workflows, leading software design and development, creating, managing, and publishing large data collections, creating educational and outreach visualizations, and assisting with acquisition and/or access to local and national advanced cyberinfrastructure and resources. Our staff can also assist in creating your data management plan and provide requested text on ITaP equipment and facilities.

If your grant proposal involves software applications that use high performance or high throughput computing resources, we can help you get it installed on the DiaGrid Hub. ITaP Research Computing staff can be funded to develop and manage the application in the Hub environment. Once your application is on the Hub, it can be shared with users worldwide, enhancing your engagement and outreach opportunities.

Some examples of our current collaborative grants are:

ITaP Research Computing is a resource provider for the NSF funded national cyberinfrastructure XSEDE (formerly TeraGrid). Our staff are actively working with our XSEDE partners and have extensive knowledge and experience with XSEDE resources and services as well as its many training and educational opportunities. We are well positioned to help the Purdue research community leverage XSEDE and other national resources such as the Open Science Grid in research and education proposals to funding agencies.
