HPC CLAIX Projects Annual Report 2020
High Performance Computing at its best! The HPC CLAIX Projects Annual Report 2020 is online and once again presents exciting research projects. Interested in top research from different topics? Take a look at what was going on at the High Performance Computer Cluster Aix-la-Chapelle (CLAIX) at RWTH Aachen University last year.

Founding of the Verein für nationales Hochleistungsrechnen
New benchmark achieved: With the founding of the Verein für nationales Hochleistungsrechnen – NHR-Verein e.V. (Association for National High Performance Computing) on August 23, 2021, eight computer centers of universities or university alliances funded by the federal and state governments are joining forces. The structures created in this way will enable successful coordination of computing capacities to provide researchers with the best possible foundation. In the future, the NHR association will enable researchers to use modern high performance computing infrastructures nationwide and independent of location.
RWTH becomes part of the National High Performance Computing Alliance
Together with the TU Darmstadt, RWTH Aachen is included in an alliance that creates better conditions for all scientists at German universities. Under the new funding concept, the federal and state governments will no longer only cover investment costs, but also operating and personnel costs. For this purpose, 62.5 million euros will be available annually for the entire NHR alliance.
TU Darmstadt as part of the National High Performance Computing Alliance
TU Darmstadt will be part of the NHR consortium funded by the German federal and state governments. At its meeting on November 13, 2020, the Joint Science Conference (GWK) decided to include TU Darmstadt in the consortium together with RWTH Aachen University.
