Seminar on getting involved in the establishment of the National HPC centre

On the 1st of September 2020, the project EuroCC has begun, its aim is to establish national high-performance computing (HPC) centres in 33 countries all over Europe.

The main task of the National Competence HPC centres is to advance the use of high-performance computing in research, education, in the public sector and the industry. The coordinators of the project in Latvia are Riga Technical University and the University of Latvia.

We invite all interested parties to join the informative seminar remotely in the Zoom environment from 14.00 to 15.30 on the 9th of October. In the seminar, the possible participant involvement, as well as the opportunities provided by the National HPC centre and the EuroCC project, will be discussed.
