The EuroCC project series aims to establish a network of National Competence Centres (NCC) in the area of high-performance computing (HPC) in all partner countries. These NCCs coordinate activities in all HPC-related fields at the national level and serve as a single contact point in their respective countries for customers from industry, science, (future) HPC experts and the general public alike. Half of the funding for the EuroCC projects comes from the EU through the EuroHPC Joint Undertaking [JU] and the other half from national funding programs within the partner countries.
Who is on board?
The EuroCC activities—with currently 28 member and associated countries on board, is coordinated by the High-Performance Computing Center Stuttgart (HLRS). The project aims to elevate the participating countries to a common high level in the fields of HPC, HPDA and artificial intelligence (AI). To fulfill this task within the first phase of the project, EuroCC has already established National Competence Centres (NCCs) with highly qualified teams in the participating countries, which are responsible for surveying and documenting the core HPC, HPDA, and AI activities and competencies in their respective countries. Phase 2 of the project will make HPC more widely available to different users from science, industry, public administration, and society.
