Final event of the HPC Competence Centre’s project EuroCC

On 13 December, we invite you to the EuroCC project’s seminar on the use of supercomputing or HPC (High-Performance Computing) in research and business as well as the future plans for the project. You will hear experience stories in using HPC from researchers and industry, including CastPrint who will tell how using HPC can improve efficiency and save resources by making simulations.

The event will take place at Radisson Blu Latvia Hotel (Elizabetes Street 55, Riga).

To participate, please register in advance. Number of places is limited. The event is free of charge.

During the event, everyone will be able to hear about the opportunities and benefits for researchers, entrepreneurs and also the public administration provided by the use of a supercomputer or HPC. At the workshop, you will learn about cooperation between 33 countries within the European HPC Competence Centres.

During the event, you will also learn what can be offered by EDIH (European Digital Innovation Hub) in Latvia, as well as the Centres of Excellence – CoE RAISE and NOMAD CoE.

At the final event of the HPC Competency Centre within the EuroCC project, we will talk about the success and achievements of the project and share our biggest challenges. One of the central themes of the event will be HPC opportunities in Latvia: how to I start using them, what benefits can a supercomputer bring to industry and Latvian business, and what is the added value of using a supercomputer right now.

The aim of this project was to set up a network on HPC Competence Centres in Europe to promote the use of High-Performance Computing opportunities in higher education, research, public administration, and industry (especially small and medium enterprises). Competence Centres gathers the expertise, experience and computing resources available in 33 European countries. It was also an opportunity for Latvia to be and develop in a single area in the field of HPC with other European countries. The total funding of the project exceeds 56 million EUR.

Latvia is one of 33 countries which, with “EuroHPC Joint Undertaking” and financial support from each project Member State, implemented the project “National Competence Centres within the framework of EuroHPC (EuroCC)” over a two-year periodbetween 2020 and 2022. A continuation of the project, EuroCC2, is planned for three years from 2023.

This is one of the final events of the EuroCC Latvia project organized by HPC Competence Centre in Latvia “SuperS” within the EuroHPC project EuroCC in collaboration with Riga Technical University’s HPC Centre and the Institute of Numerical Modeling at University of Latvia.
