What is

High performance computing (HPC) is the use of high-performance computing technologies (supercomputers and parallel programs) to solve complex numerical problems. Deployment of HPC is important in modern science as well as in industry.


National competence center's mission is to promote the use of HPC in science and industry and to increase the competences of its users. If you are interested in more information, training or cooperation do not hesitate to contact us.

and training

The National Competence Center provides services and courses in the field of HPC. All our services and courses are free of charge. Collaborate with us, use our computing resources, learn to code, find out how to optimize parallel code sand use HPC software efficiently.

and Information

We regularly publish updates on the activities of the competence center, reports on successful deployment of HPC, cooperation with academia and private sector, and organized events. Subscribe to our newsletter and follow us on social networks!

Slovakia has joined a European network of 33 competence centers. The aim of the EuroCC and CASTIEL is to bridge the existing HPC skill gaps while promoting cooperation and the implementation of best practices across Europe. European countries are currently taking part in the initiative and pooling their resources with the EU and private partners to enable the EU to become a world leader in supercomputing.


Can we exploit the HPC possibilities in basic research effectively? 14 Oct - On October 12, 2021 the second lecture of our „Supercomputing in science“ series took place on the premises of the Computational centre of the Slovak Academy of Sciences. Pavel Neogrády from the Department of physical and theoretical chemistry of the Faculty of Natural Sciences, CU talked about highly accurate computational methods in the field of theoretical chemistry and about their complexity and numerical intricacies.
A Centre of Excellence in HPC: Performance Optimisation and Productivity 5 Oct - Once again, we bring you to the attention of the PoP service: (Performance Optimisation and Productivity; A Centre of Excellence in HPC) One of the partners of PoP CoE is also the IT4Innovations National Supercomputing Center at VŠB - Technical University in Ostrava in the Czech Republic.
Current trends and visions in HPC in Slovakia 1 Oct - On September 29, we started a series of lectures "Supercomputing in Science" in the Aula of the Slovak Academy of Sciences. Popularization-educational lectures are a joint activity of the Computer Museum and the National Competence Center for HPCNCC, as the primary contact point for HPC in Slovakia, covers, among other things, educational and dissemination activities in this area.
