• Simulations of Sediment Movement Could Help Protect Waterways

    Researchers at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) are using high-performance computing to model how waterways’ sediment beds change and what those changes mean for pollutants moving downstream.

  • HLRS to Improve Urgent Computing Capabilities

    In a new project, HLRS will explore how supercomputing could support government agencies in quickly reacting to future pandemics, extreme weather events, and other crises.

  • Saving Energy in Data Centers through More Efficient Cooling

    A new research project called DEGREE will attempt to dynamically optimize the mix of free cooling and active cooling.

  • HLRS Celebrates 25th Anniversary

    At a special celebration, friends from across the HLRS community gathered to reflect on milestones in the center's history and the challenges that will shape its evolution over the coming decade.

& Science

Research and science are the main pillars ensuring continuous delivery of high-edge services in every area of high-performance computing provisioning.



HLRS offers a variety of services to industry and Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) way beyond plain HPC resource provisioning.



Simulations transform research and development, as well as decision making in politics. Dealing with simulations in a rational way is therefore a scientific and societal task in itself.


The High-Performance Computing Center Stuttgart (HLRS) of the University of Stuttgart is one of the three member centres of the Gauss Centre for Supercomputing (GCS). HLRS supports national and European researchers from science and industry by providing high-performance computing platforms and technologies, services and support. Services are provided in cooperation with the other two member centres of GCS and with industrial partners such as hww GmbH (T-Systems, Porsche AG) and SICOS BW GmbH.

HLRS conducts basic and applied research in the field of high-performance computing in publicly funded national and European projects as well as industrial research activities in association with partners from research and industry. Collaborative research in the automotive field is carried out in cooperation with the Automotive Simulation Center Stuttgart (ASCS).
