Tasks & Collaboration

What are the NCCs’ tasks?

The tasks of the National Competence Centres include mapping existing HPC, HPDA and AI competences, HPC training and the identification of HPC, HPDA and AI experts, as well as the coordination of services such as business development, application support, technology transfer, training and education, and access to expertise. Researchers from academia and industry both benefit from this competence concentration, and more efficient research ultimately benefits state and national governments and society as a whole.

The National Competence Centres will act as the first points of contact for HPC, HPDA and AI in their respective countries. The NCCs will bundle information and provide experts, offer access to expertise and HPC training and education.

The overall objective of EuroCC—to create a European base of excellence in HPC by filling existing gaps— comes with a clear vision: offering a broad portfolio of services in all HPC, HPDA, and AI-related areas, tailored to the needs of industry, science, and public administrations. 

Collaboration Between EuroCC and CASTIEL

EuroCC works closely together with the Coordination and Support Action (CSA) CASTIEL, which links the national centres throughout Europe and ensures successful transfer and training possibilities between the participating countries.
