The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga SimCenter invites partners in government and nonprofit agencies to collaborate on COVID-19 research projects. Also known as the Center of Excellence in Applied Computational Science and Engineering, the SimCenter offers support for COVID-19 projects by bringing together UTC professors and students with its extensive computational infrastructure and research thrusts.
The SimCenter works with external entities on joint proposals to the National Science Foundation, including for its Early-concept Grants for Exploratory Research, or EAGER, and Grants for Rapid Response Research, or RAPID, programs; the U.S. Department of Defense; and the National Institutes of Health’s Small Business Innovation Research and Small Business Technology Transfer programs in the areas of advanced modeling and simulation, machine learning, big data, cyber systems and internet of things (system of interrelated computing devices), health and biosystems, energy and the environment.
SimCenter partners will work on solving immediate problems related to big data, complex IT and modeling and simulation that will help Chattanooga and Tennessee address COVID-19.
