The University of Nebraska–Lincoln will be teaming up with the National Science Foundation and several other research institutions to make major contributions to the high-energy physics field using high-powered computing tools and software innovation.

This month, NSF launched the Institute for Research and Innovation in Software for High-Energy Physics, a $25 million collaborative effort to manage the data collected from upcoming the High-Luminosity Large Hadron Collider, the world's most powerful particle accelerator.

Much of the data and software will be stored and developed in the Holland Computing Center (HCC). Nebraska will be involved with the project's data-related research and development areas.
