Scientific Computing Core

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.
