HLRS Projects

Staff scientists at HLRS are involved in dozens of funded collaborative research projects, working closely with academic and industrial partners from across Europe to address key problems facing the future of high-performance computing. Many of these projects also involve applied research to address global challenges where HPC can provide new kinds of practical solutions. In addition, HLRS is leading multiple international projects focused on increasing HPC expertise across Europe.


DEGREE

DEGREE is investigating a method for increasing energy efficiency in data centers by dynamically controlling cooling circuit temperatures, and is developing guidelines for implementing the resulting concepts.
