Slovenian National Supercomputing Network

EuroCC 2 project

SLING has a National HPC Competence Centre – EuroCC@SLING, whose mission is to promote the use of supercomputing for research in science, industry, academia and public services, in particular by raising the level of user knowledge and awareness of the benefits of using supercomputing technology.

EuroCC 2 (EuroHPC National Competence Centres – Phase 2) is the continuation of the EuroCC project, which ended at the end of 2022. It is part of the European Union’s Digital Europe programme, in which all participating countries are responsible for continuing and developing the activities of the National Competence Centres (NCCs) in the field of High Performance Computing (HPC) in their countries.

National Competence Centres are tasked with coordinating activities at national level in all areas related to HPC, as well as serving as the main point of contact for users in science, industry, current and future HPC professionals, and the general public. EuroCC 2 is co-financed 50% through the Digital Europe Programme (EuroHPC Joint Undertaking) and 50% through the partner countries’ own contribution. The project, which involves 39 members and associate members, is coordinated by the University of Stuttgart (HLRS – Stuttgart Supercomputing Centre).

The first Euro CC project aimed to raise the level of use of HPC, HPDA and AI technologies in the participating countries. In order to enable the use of HPC by different target user groups, National Competence Centres (NCCs) have been set up, which are responsible for reviewing and documenting core competences in the areas of HPC, HPDA and AI. The main goal of EuroCC 2 to continue and upgrade the operation of National Competence Centres in 33 countries and to ensure that they foster a strong national network providing services to their users in industry, academia and public administration, while at the same time laying the foundations for a strong European level of competences and services.

The Slovenian National Competence Centre participates in the EuroCC 2 project as a consortium of five SLING partners, led by Arnes. The other partners in the project are Arctur d.o.o., “Jožef Stefan” Institute, University of Ljubljana and University of Maribor.

The project began on 1 January 2023 and will finish on 31 December 2025.

EuroCC 2 is funded by the European Union. Funded by the Joint Undertaking for High Performance Computing (EuroHPC JU) as well as partner countries Germany, Bulgaria, Austria, Croatia, Cyprus, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Lithuania, Latvia, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, France, the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, Slovakia, Norway, Turkey, the Republic of North Macedonia, Iceland, Montenegro, and Serbia, under grant agreement No 951732 101101903.

EuroCC@SLING offers:

support in the use of HPC and HDPA technology for different skill levels and application areas;

the opportunity to learn at various training events;

help with the use of technology for small and medium enterprises.
