Introducing the Hartree National Centre for Digital Innovation

HNCDI is a new collaborative programme with IBM which will enable businesses to acquire the skills, knowledge and technical capability required to adopt digital technologies like supercomputing, data analytics, artificial intelligence (AI) and quantum computing. 

We’ll provide a safe and supportive environment for organisations to explore the latest digital technologies and skills, develop proofs-of-concept and apply them to industry and public sector challenges. HNCDI is made up of four workstreams designed to address four different stages of your digital journey:

  • Explain – Training to tackle skills gaps within your organisation
  • Explore – Evaluating the technologies you need to enhance productivity 
  • Excelerate – Implementing digital solutions within your business
  • Emerging Technologies – Knowing how to prepare and what to invest in
