Supercomputers for neuroscience research

The High Performance Analytics and Computing (HPAC) Platform developes and provides supercomputing, storage, visualisation and simulation technology that can run on supercomputers. With this infrastructure, scientists can

  • Run large-scale, data intensive, interactive multi-scale brain simulations up to the size of a full human brain.
  • Manage the large amounts of data used and produced by simulations and in experiments, and
  • Manage complex workflows comprising concurrent simulation, data analysis and visualisation workloads.

The compute backend are supercomputers located at four large European High Performance Computing (HPC) centers and two pilots systems that were designed based on neuroscience use cases.
