Bernstein to head up research centre

Mel Bern­stein, Northeastern University’s senior vice provost for research and grad­uate edu­ca­tion, has been elected pres­i­dent of the Mass­a­chu­setts Green High Per­for­mance Com­puting Center (MGHPCC), a state-​​of-​​the-​​art com­pu­ta­tional infra­struc­ture and col­lab­o­ra­tive research centre, and chair­person of MGHPCC Holyoke, its non-­profit affil­iate. He will suc­ceed Tom Chmura in the position.

In the last 18 months, the MGHPCC has gone from vision to reality. Offi­cially opening its doors in November 2012, the center is an unprece­dented example of col­lab­o­ra­tion between pri­vate industry, state gov­ern­ment, and five of the commonwealth’s leading research institutions.

North­eastern, Boston Uni­ver­sity, Har­vard Uni­ver­sity, the Mass­a­chu­setts Insti­tute of Tech­nology, and the Uni­ver­sity of Mass­a­chu­setts have each con­tributed $10 mil­lion to sup­port con­struc­tion of the facility, which is the first of its kind in the nation.

The part­ner­ship also includes Mass­a­chu­setts Governor Deval Patrick’s office, Cisco Sys­tems, and EMC Corp., a Hopkinton-​​based data-​​storage com­pany founded by North­eastern engi­neering alumni.

'Now, the ques­tion is how do we move for­ward to max­i­mise both the ben­e­fits of the facility and the collab­o­ra­tive spirit that has been devel­oped in building it,' said Bern­stein.
