NVDIA grants a project from the Gravitational Astronomy group at the Institute of Space Sciences (IEEC-CISC)
NVIDIA Corporation, an American Technology company specialised in the design and development of graphics processing units (GPUs), has as awarded a GPU Grant of its Academic programs, proposed by Lluís Gesa and Carlos F. Sopuerta project, researchers from the Gravitational Astronomy group at Institute of Space Sciences (IEEC-CSIC).

GPU board

Researchers will have a Geogforce GTX Titan GPU board for computational research. Specifically, this hardware will be useful in research in the field of gravitational waves to calculate models also to investigate new approaches for data analysis.


NVIDIA is the world leader in visual computing. The GPU serves as the visual cortex of modern computers and is at the heart of our products and services. Companies’ work opens up new universes to explore, enables amazing creativity and discovery, and powers what were once science fiction inventions like artificial intelligence and autonomous cars.

Beginning as a standard PC graphics chip company, NVIDIA has transformed into a specialized platform company that targets four very large markets — Gaming, Professional Visualization, Datacenter and Auto — where visual computing is essential and deeply valued. They focus on the field of visual computing with the ability to deliver our value through PC, mobile and cloud architectures.
