Electric Ant Lab is moving R&D from the lab to the laptop. We do so by providing intuitive Simulation-as-a-Service tools with novel scientific models of materials, complex computing methods, massive amounts of data and high-performance computing. On-demand and scalable. Which means we develop, host and run pretty complex and forward thinking code and a complex back-end with a number of sub-services.

Our company and our research has been backed by EU subsidies and since the start of this year by a growing community of innovative companies in the med-tech and chemical industries. These are companies that gradually understand that simulations of complex fluids with HPC resources provide the means for a better understanding and faster development of their products and materials.
