This action is part of the EuroHPC JU’s broader strategy addressing training and skills to develop talents for a world-class HPC ecosystem in Europe.

The proposed projects are expected to develop a higher education programme addressing the following main objectives:

  • Educate students able to contribute in areas such as the design, deployment, operation, and/or the use of current and future generation HPC and HPC-related technologies in Europe.
  • Educate experts skilled in driving HPC adoption and knowledge transfer in industry and academia in different strategic domains, thereby linking HPC activities in industry and academia.

While basic computer science and programming languages are included in many university curricula, existing education programmes do not meet the demands on modern education adapted to a rapidly developing HPC technology ecosystem.

The pilots will develop a modern HPC-centred education programme to reach scientific and industrial target groups and to serve key actors in the private and public sector.

The education programme will establish links to major stakeholders such as relevant European industry players and other European initiatives. Increasing mobility between European universities, research centres and industry represents a central goal of the initiative.
