Services

CCV provides computing infrastructure, consulting, and support to the Brown Community. We have HPC specialists, data scientists, and research software engineers available to work with researchers. We frequently partner with researchers on projects that may span weeks, months, or years. These partnerships can in some cases involve a researcher using grant funds to support one of our data scientists or research software engineers.
