WELCOME TO EUROCC ACCESS
Behind EuroCC Access
With funding from the European High-Performance Computing Joint Undertaking (EuroHPC JU), the EuroCC project will achieve its goals within two years. Considering its ambitious aims, the EuroCC project is supported by the Coordination and Support Action (CSA) CASTIEL project in order to bridge the existing High-Performance Computing (HPC) skills gaps and to promote cooperation and the implementation of best practices across Europe.

This website aims to give a competence map of the National Competence Centers (NCCs) and their HPC-related activities along with a place to exchange with other stakeholders. In addition, NCCs will have a space to exchange between themselves for any related topics, such as best practices, guides and collaborations.
What is HPC?
High-Performance Computing is the ability to process massive data and perform complex calculations at high speed to solve large problems in science, engineering and business. A supercomputer is one the best-known types of HPC solutions and enables parallel processing: thousands of computer nodes working together to complete one or more tasks for simulation and calculation; in comparison one should combine thousands of typical computers working together to achieve similar results.
What are the NCCs?
A National Competence Center is the reference and single point of contact and coordination on a national level for HPC. Its missions are to analyse, implement and coordinate all necessary activities and offers services to end users to cover their needs: from access to resources, from technological consultancy to the provision of training courses for academia, public administrations and industry.
The aim is to bring together the necessary expertise to set up a cross-European network of NCCs in HPC-related topics with 33 participating members and associated states and to provide a broad service portfolio tailored to the respective national needs of academia, public administrations and industry. Each NCC has a presentation page with their skills and contact information.
