We'll tell you about our services:

  • Research Support

Cineca’s facility for supercomputing is the biggest in Italy and one of the largest in Europe. The mission of Cineca is to support the scientific discovery, by providing access and assistance to high performance computing and large data resources to the Italian and European research community. Access to computational resources is provided through a Peer Review process based on scientific excellence and is organized into three different programmes, Regional (LISA), Italian (ISCRA) and European (PRACE) respectively. During the 2016 an overall total of 1.6 billion compute hours (core/h) was granted to perform numerical simulations in various scientific fields. To facilitate the use of the supercomputers, Cineca offers an extensive training programme to the research community. In 2016, over 760 Italian and European students attended 32 courses, 4 schools and 1 workshop, distributed across Bologna, Milan and Rome. Most of the courses involve hands-on exercises to provide a  practical approach.
