High Performance Computing (HPC) – Processing Power for Simulations

Researchers who analyze complex phenomena, and produce and test models using statistics and simulations, usually collect a lot of data. Processing this data requires large amounts of computing power. That’s why researchers at the University of Mannheim are given additional computing resources and data analysis software through Baden-Württemberg’s High Performance Computing (HPC) cluster.

Researchers in Baden-Württemberg can access the HPC cluster free of charge. Individual support is given to researchers in the fields of Economics and Social Science by the HPC Competence Center in Mannheim/Heidelberg. The center can advise researchers on how to use HPC. It can also address individual software requests, and help to adapt tools. Researchers in other fields can get advice through the Baden-Württemberg support portal.
