Projects

Provide advanced HPC and Cloud Computin services, Communication breaktrouh between Slovenia and Italy, Stimulate awareness and demand for HPC and Cloud Computing services, Regional talent and skils development

HPC5 center

The long-term vision of HPC5 is to build a new HPC centre, which will also house a technological incubator for technologically oriented start-ups and spin-offs, and a network of Competence Centres in the Slovenia-Italy cross-border region. Investment in infrastructure, capabilities, and training at the regional level, along with initiatives to promote industrial and commercial adoption of the new technology will be essential to spurring adoption and usage of HPC and thus fuelling growth and job creation in the region
