The Joint Undertaking for an African Materials Institute (JUAMI) was established in 2012 to build international collaborations in materials research and education. The Open Computing Facility (OCF) was started in 2019 to further the mission of JUAMI through the establishment of an open access, cloud-based server that provides high computing power and state-of-the-art sustainability assessment and materials research software. Applications to the server are open and free to any student (undergraduate/Master’s/PhD) at an accredited African institute.

Applications for server access are rolling and can be submitted via the form embedded on the Apply Now page. Software is constantly being added and we are interested to hear what packages would help with your research! Please reach out to juamiocf@gmail.com with suggestions and questions.

Software and databases currently available on the server:
