The STFC commissioned Technopolis Group to undertake a baseline evaluation of the Hartree Centre; a high performance computing and data analytics research facility that seeks to transform the competitiveness of UK industry, by accelerating the adoption of data-centric computing, big data and cognitive technologies.
The aims of the project were:
- To measure and demonstrate the benefits and socio-economic impact of Hartree to-date, providing an evidence-based understanding of the value (outputs and impacts) generated from both public and private investment in the Centre and its activities during Phase 1 and Phase 2; and
- To develop a Benefits Realisation Framework and Plan for Hartree that will help drive and capture the intended positive advantages of Hartree in the future (i.e. during Phase 3 of the Centre), as well as support STFC evaluation plans for other large capital spending programmes more generally.
