High Performance Computing

High performance computing (HPC), also known as supercomputing, involves a multitude of processors working in parallel to process data and perform calculations thousands of times faster than a normal computer.


n the digital era, it is at the core of major advances and innovation in a multitude of sectors, from science and engineering to medicine and finance. The combination of HPC with large volumes of data, artificial intelligence, and the technical advances linked to virtualization and Cloud Computing fosters the rapid development of new HPC applications and services, and makes HPC a strategic resource for Europe's future. Our research concerns the analysis, development and application of HPC methods and tools, with an emphasis on high-performance solvers for multi-physics modelling using partial differential equations, and on training large neural networks for simulation-based inference.
