Towards Effective Bulgarian Competence Centre in High Performance Computing – Service Portfolio and Competences
Keywords:EuroCC2, HPC , HPDA, AI
AbstractThree years ago a new European initiative started: establishing a network of Centres of Competence in HPC in the European countries through the project EuroCC (2020-2022) in its second phase EuroCC2 (2023-2025). The goal is to accelerate the improvement of national and thus European capabilities in the area of HPC+ technologies, where HPC+ means High Performance Computing (HPC) and HPC application in HPDA and AI. In order to form an effective National Competence Centre in HPC+ technologies, we performed extensive competence mapping and now devise an extensive service portfolio, open to users from academia, public administration and industry. In this paper we present our analysis of the situation in Bulgaria as well as our approaches to make NCC and effective focus point for those that can benefit from use of HPC+ technology in their research or business.
