EuroCC Project – NCC Turkey (National Competence Centre)


TUBITAK ULAKBIM (Turkish Academic Network and Information Center)
Beneficiary – National Coordinator

In the EuroCC Project, TUBITAK ULAKBIM is responsible for the coordination and financial management of the National Competence Centre (NCC) of Turkey. Strengthening industry-academia collaboration through the SME HPC case studies and skill development via training events and dissemination activities are the main focus of the NCC for integration of the national HPC ecosystem to EuroHPC. TRUBA (Turkish Science e-Infrastructure) as the national HPC centre managed TUBITAK ULAKBIM, provides HPC infrastructure expertise and resources to the national community.

METU (Middle East Technical University)
Linked Third Party

METU’s expertise in HPC is in basic sciences, such as computational physics and chemistry applications, numerical methods in engineering applications such as computational fluid dynamics and computational electromagnetics as well as big data analytics and machine learning. That relevant experience directly supports the training organisation of the NCCs and provides consultancy to the SMEs which requires HPC mentoring.

SU (Sabancı University)
Linked Third Party

Sabanci University prioritized the areas of data analytics, integrated manufacturing technologies, and functional surfaces and interfaces for nano-diagnostics through its centers.  SU aims to be a national and international training hub in the area of HPC and will contribute to the training focused activities of the NCC. The HPC solutions for the industry are implemented by the consultancy of academic experts included by the NCC.

İTÜ UHeM (National Centre of High Performance Computing)
Linked Third Party

UHeM has been providing HPC infrastructure and data storage services to academic research projects and industry since 2006. The Centre is the national representative and a member of the PRACE. UHeM supports the collaboration between academia and industry for the sustainability of NCC Turkey.

SparCity Project : EuroCC@Turkey project and SparCity project work in collaborative relationships to enhance the HPC ecosystem at the national level within the same alignment of EuroHPC. The main goal of this collaboration is the performance evaluation of HPC use cases on TRUBA national HPC infrastructure. The SparCity project can help maximize sparse computation performance and energy efficiency by providing algorithms and tools. NCC Türkiye can provide SME case study use cases and HPC resources for the SparCity project. Furthermore, both parties will evaluate collaboration in Horizon Europe and Digital Europe toward the EuroHPC ecosystem.

Mind4Machines Project : EuroCC@Turkey project and Mind4Machines project work collaboratively to support the HPC/HPDA/AI adoption in manufacturing companies towards more sustainable and resource-efficient manufacturing aligned with the latest EU policies. The Mind4Machines Project can help propagate the significance of HPC infrastructures and the emerging EuroHPC ecosystem for the manufacturing sector through suitable mechanisms. NCC Türkiye can recommend manufacturing and technology provider companies from its network to apply the open calls by the Mind4Machines Project.
