Scientific computing has become more and more important over the past years, not only for research but also for training and education. In order to address this need and create better opportunities for gaining HPC expertise, the state of Baden-Württemberg has developed the concept “bwHPC” (High Performance Computing in Baden-Württemberg).
Detailed information is available on the bwHPC website.
Scientists and students in Baden-Württemberg have access to five modern bwHPC clusters dedicated to special scientific fields:
