EuroCC@Greece is the gateway to various training opportunities related to HPC/HPDA/AI in several scientific domains. Face-to-face and online training courses together with PRACE and other national and international infrastructures will be reached through this platform. The focus is given on high-end usage, both in academia and industry, targeting new users and researchers. Topics include MPI & OpenMP, Software and performance engineering, GPU programming in scientific disciplines such as Life  sciences, Chemistry, Climate modelling, Engineering and more. At this point, in Greece, the main training is offered by the GRNET PRACE training center.

GRNET PRACE training center

Today, the main HPC training activity in Greece is offered by GRNET, through targeted webinars. GRNET is an official PRACE training center.
