Ireland's High-Performance Computing Centre

The Irish Centre for High-End Computing (ICHEC), founded in 2005, is Ireland's national high performance computer centre. Its mission is to provide High-Performance Computing (HPC) resources, support, education and training for researchers in third-level institutions and through technology transfer and enablement to support Irish industries large and small to contribute to the development of the Irish economy.[about us]


Research Collaboration

ICHEC is actively involved in a number of research collaborations allowing its staff to develop and share HPC expertise in the context of frontline research. Building strong partnerships with research modelers is a key part of ICHEC's mission.[more]

Consortium Support

ICHEC staff members provide direct support to research projects. This involves a member of ICHEC's scientific staff working directly on specific projects to help researchers develop and tune their codes to run more effectively on international as well as national high-end compute facilities.[more]
