• “Digital Twins” Could Help Design Cities of the Future

    Using modelling in concert with 3D imaging and citizen-supplied data, researchers develop a novel method for urban planning.

  • University of Stuttgart Researchers Use HPC to Improve Wind Turbine Design

    Using a machine learning algorithm and supercomputing, scientists are modelling wind turbine designs to improve energy efficiency.

  • HLRS to Enhance Advanced AI Capabilities with New Cray Supercomputer

    HLRS has contracted with supercomputer manufacturer Cray, a Hewlett-Packard Enterprise company, to install a new Cray CS-Storm GPU-accelerated supercomputer to accelerate AI workloads.

  • Collaboration with SWR Helps Development of Music Recommendation Software

    An analysis of audio data of individual music files run at HLRS enabled the broadcasting company to develop a new software tool for identifying similarity between titles.

& 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).
