Webinar Essentials

Language: English
Audience: NCCs, SMEs and big industry, university students
Duration: 1 hour


NCC Turkey initiated 26 case studies with 23 companies, 18 of which are SMEs. So far, we have five industrial success stories in computational material science, weather research and forecasting, computational fluid dynamics, high-performance data analysis, and artificial intelligence. We had limited HPC collaboration with the industry before the EuroCC project. The EuroCC project also enabled us to make three submissions to the FF4EuroHPC 2nd call with the case study companies, and one of them got funded by the FF4EuroHPC consortium. In the context of this short webinar, we would like to share our industry collaboration and case study experiences in which we describe and discuss industrial user acquisition, case study process, best practices, challenges, and ideas to improve. The goal is to identify opportunities to help each other, increase collaboration, and find innovative solutions together.
