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.


InHPC-DE furthers the federation of the three national HPC centres in Germany, addresses new requirements such as security, and evaluates the Gaia-X ecosystem in the context of high-performance computing.

The goal of iWindow is to enhance the real machine window with computer-generated images and additional information.


Visionair called for the creation of a European infrastructure for high level visualization facilities that are open to research communities across Europe.


The objective of this project is the development of a flexible, highly parallel and scalable interactive visualization environment for data processing and analysis that meets the requirements of the different application domains.



This project aims at providing a research basis for studies on control and driver assistance systems in future vehicles using virtual environment techniques.
