ICHEC is the National Competence Centre for Ireland under the EuroHPC Competence Centre initiative (EuroCC).


This initiative is funded jointly by the European Union and the Government of Ireland through the €1 billion EuroHPC Joint Undertaking. Ireland through ICHEC operates one of 33 National Competence Centers across Europe. Each centre will foster High Performance Computing (HPC) activities and strengthen the availability of HPC for academics and SME's.

The EuroCC activities bring ICHEC expertise and support to the Irish academic and enterprise organisations in the fields of HPC, High Performance Data Analysis (HPDA) and Artificial Intelligence (AI). These are essential driving forces for digital transformation of science, industry, public administration and society in Ireland and increased global competitiveness.

Through the EuroCC, ICHEC offers a broad portfolio of services in all HPC-related areas, tailored to the needs of industry, science and public administration. The EuroCC services accessible at ICHEC are:
