CINECA, the largest computing centre in Italy and one of the largest in Europe.

The mission of the Cineca HPC department is to accelerate the scientific discovery by providing high performance computing resources, data management and storage systems and tools and HPC services and expertise at large, aiming to develop and promote technical and scientific services related to high-performance computing for the Italian and European research community.


The World’s Fastest European Technology based Supercomputer for CINECA and Europe
New “Leonardo” System designed by Atos integrate the Modular Supercomputing technology developed by ParTec and the services provided by E4 Computer Engineering to Power Italy’s and European’s HPC and AI Research.
Press release

European and South Korean agreement signed on joint development of a COVID-19 treatment using raloxifene
South Korean and European Union research institutions signed a letter of intent (LOI) for international joint research on COVID-19 treatment.
Press release

2021 next generation: LEONARDO
Designed, developed, manufactured and tested in Europe, the Atos supercomputer will provide Italian and EuroHPC researchers with a modern infrastructure.

For 50 years Cineca has been providing public and industrial research with the best tools for high-performance scientific computing, identifying the most promising and innovative technologies.

The FF4EUROHPC project is a European initiative that helps
facilitate access to supercomputers and all high performance
computing (HPC) related technologies for SMEs.

FF4EuroHPC will launch two open calls for “application experiments”.
More deteail on the first call here.

Cineca is partner of many European Project, covering different science domain. In particular now involved on the EXSCALATE4COV project to launch a clinical trial in Italy for to treat COVID-19 patients.

Life Science

Exscalate4CoV: EXaSCale smArt pLatform Against paThogEns 4CoV

The EU-funded consortium Exscalate4CoV, using European supercomputing to counter the Coronavirus pandemic and improve the management and care of patients.

Nuclear Fusion



An all-Italian partnership between ENEA and CINECA has been selected by EUROfusion, the European Consortium for the development of fusion energy, to deliver high-performance computing and data storage to support European research on fusion.

DARE: Digital Environment for collaborative Alliances to Regenerate urban Ecosystems in middle-sized cities

It wants to demonstrate the effectiveness of an INNOVATIVE DIGITAL-BASED AND CITIZEN-CENTRED GOVERNANCE APPROACH, aimed at facilitating, supporting & fastening the implementation & evaluation of the DARSENA (Ravenna) URBAN REGENERATION PROCESS, to be replied in other EU MIDDLE-SIZED CITIES.

Astrophysics and Plasma Physics

AIDA: Artificial Intelligence Data Analysis

The project brings a transformational innovation to the analysis of heliophysics data by developing a new open source software called AIDApy and setting up a database of virtual and real spacecraft data, called AIDAdb.

Cineca is also part of many Center of Excellence:

Cheese: Center of Excellence
In Solid Earth
MaX: Materials at Exascale EXCELLERAT: European Centre of Excellence for Engineering Application TREX: Targeting Real chemical accuracy at the EXascale

And many other active projects can be found here.
