We have left the CCER inaugural year behind us. Reflecting back on 2017 I am proud of what we jointly achieved.

Of course we had our well-attended and well-received official opening event in June. We also built an attractive website, started the CCER seminars, and connected with many stakeholders at DIFFER, TU/e and beyond. In the meantime numerous less visible efforts happened in the background. This resulted in new licenses, new HPC hardware, new CCER affiliates, and new funding for projects.

I thank all involved for your sustained efforts and commitment. The results achieved in 2017 place us in an excellent position for further growth. As a reminder of the bigger picture we are part of, I leave you with a graph (below) you might want to contemplate. Will we make the turn? How many dots before we reach the bottom-right corner?

I wish you a happy new year and I look forward to the next steps in our joint journey!

About CCER

The Center for Computational Energy Research  aims to explore pathways to future energy systems. This is done via computational simulations that complement experimental energy research. The center was founded in 2017 as the result of a joint initiative between the Department of Applied Physics of the Eindhoven University of Technology and NWO Institute DIFFER.
