Title: National High-Performance Computing in Germany: NHR and NHR4CES

Abstract: The NHR Alliance ( pools the resources and expertise of high-performance computing at universities and makes them available to scientists at German universities free of charge. The NHR Alliance does not only provide computing capacity, but also supports users, in particular by providing advice and training in the use of high-performance computing in their fields of application. The services offered by the national network cover a large range of topics and are accessible nationwide. NHR is jointly financed by the federal and state governments. This talk provides an overview of this funding instrument – launched in 2021 – and the nine funded NHR centers. The second part of the talk focuses on NHR4CES (, the NHR center for Computational Engineering Science, jointly operated by RWTH Aachen University and TU Darmstadt.
