The UK Innovation Corridor: HPC and the Bio-Technology Revolution

Today there are more patents being approved in the Innovation Corridor per capita than in Silicon Valley, USA. In 2019, it was named as the UK’s fastest growing economic region, with businesses in the corridor reporting a turnover of around £121 billion per annum. With a growing population of around 2 million within the corridor, urbanisation is fast becoming a key trend, but there is more to draw the world’s brightest minds here than by its reputation alone. There are, for example, organisations like AstraZenca, which are changing the way medicines and therapies are developed globally, businesses that are influencing how the financial markets are evolving and incubator projects leveraging HPC and AI to drive development at the forefront of many fields of industry.

The Use of High-Performance Polymers in HPC and Data Center Applications

“Polymer components in liquid cooling systems are attractive for several reasons: they are lightweight, typically less expensive than metal counterparts, and are impervious to corrosion that can render parts inoperable or introduce debris into flow paths. The challenges with many polymers used to date, however, are their abilities to handle high temperatures and physical stressors without deforming, cracking or creeping. These shortcomings become significant when leaks occur, leading to downtime or damage to equipment.”
