Dr Lars Goerigk project partner in successful Australian Data Partnerships proposal

Congratulations to Dr Lars Goerigk who is a named project partner on a successful proposal for the Australian Data Partnerships Program run by the Australian Research Data Commons.

The two-year project will establish the first “Australasian Computational and Simulation Commons” hosted at the University of Queensland by project leader Prof. Alan Mark. The new database aims at providing Australian and international researchers with access to data generated during quantum-chemical and molecular-mechanics projects and therefore reduces the necessity of repeating common calculations, thus, reducing the usage of computational resources and energy. The project involves a total of 15 project partners from 10 Australian universities. Dr Goerigk, as the only project partner from The University of Melbourne, will provide data generated with the Goerigk group’s large database for thermochemistry, kinetics, and noncovalent interactions, which has become an international standard in the assessment of Density Functional Theory and other quantum-chemical methods.
