• EUMaster4HPC - European Master for High Performance Computing
The Client : Evropska komisija ( EUMaster4HPC )
Project type: European projects
Project duration: 2022 - 2025
  • Description

Advancing education and training in High-Performance Computing (HPC) and its applicability to HPDA and AI is essential for strengthening the world-class European HPC ecosystem. Education in HPC will help ensure the digital transformation and sustainability of high-priority economic sectors. Missing educated and skilled professionals in HPC/HPDA/AI could prevent Europe from creating high socio-economic added value. The EUMater4HPC consortium aims to develop a new and innovative European master programme focusing on high-performance solutions to address these issues. The programme aims to catalyse various aspects of the HPC ecosystem and its applications in different scientific and industrial domains. The project brings together major European HPC education players and mobilises them to unify existing programs into a common European curriculum. The project emphasises the collaboration of the best specialists in HPC across Europe, developing innovative teaching paradigms and new content. Employers, researchers, HPC specialists, supercomputing centres, centres of excellence and technology providers will constitute a workforce towards this master in HPC pilot programme. This pilot will provide a base for further national and pan-European educational programmes in HPC. Lessons learned and material development will accelerate the uptake of HPC in academia and industry. Creating a European network of HPC specialists will catalyse transfers and mutual support between students, teachers, and industrial experts. A particular focus on mobility will enable students to rapidly gain experience through internships and exposure to European supercomputing centres.
