Welcome to the home-page of the UK Car-Parrinello Consortium. We are an association of research groups collaborating on the first-principles computer simulation of condensed matter. Our aim is to use the creativity and strength of collaboration and shared expertise to produce outstanding science and simulation software.

UKCP has joined with CCLRC Daresbury Laboratory and Accelrys (formely Molecular Simulations) in an exciting alliance to develop the CASTEP code and to distribute it to UK academics. This unique venture brings together scientists and software professionals to drive forward the development and application of first-principles methods.

Daresbury's support for UKCP is co-ordinated by Adrian Wander of the Computational Materials Group. Contact for further information.
