NCSR budget: 350,000€

The EuroCC project aims to implement the European network of National Competence Centres (NCC) in the area of high-performance computing (HPC), by establishing in each of the participating nations (33 member and associated countries), a HPC Competence Centre as a reference and single contact point for academia, industry, public administrations and the general public. The project aims to elevate the participating countries to a common high level in the fields of HPC, HPDA (high-performance data analytics) and artificial intelligence (AI).
