The Scientific Computing Core (SCC) is the technical backbone of the Flatiron Institute.
It develops, deploys and maintains computational infrastructure — from supercomputers to desktop PCs — dedicated solely to the use of Flatiron researchers.
A major effort of the Flatiron Institute is the development and support of high-quality, open-source software for research.
