As an institution that will encompass HPC activities in Slovakia, the National Supercomputing Centre (NSCC) was founded on November 18, 2020. The NSCC will support education, contribute to the HPC advancement on the national level as well as operate the national HPC infrastructure. Close cooperation with the National Competence Centre is expected.
One of the NSCCs high priority goals is to built a new supercomputer using a unique hardware solution developed by the Tachyum company. The new HPC infrastructure is expected to offer performance on the top European level.
State institutions as well as companies from the private sector are members of the NSCC consortium. The Ministry of Investments, Regional Development and Informatization of the Slovak Republic (MIRRI SR), and the Slovak Academy of Sciences (SAS) represent the state sector, while I4DI represents the private sector.
