About Us

Infrastructure and projects are funded by the ministry of science, research and arts (MWK) of the state of Baden-Württemberg, Germany, by the German research society (DFG) and 10 universities of Baden-Württemberg. Expertise is pooled in so-called bwHPC competence centers.

bwHPC Logo bwHPC Competence Centers

The bwHPC-S5 project offers user support via HPC Competence Centers consisting of expert teams from across the universities of Baden-Württemberg. In these centers, the available state-wide expertise for user support in selected research areas is bundled and concentrated. Consequently, the advisory foundation for the diverse scientific peer groups is strengthened and enlarged. The Competence Centers for different research areas are complemented by a cross-sectoral team for user support across all research areas.
