ENCCS Industry Days 2023

21 Nov 2023 09:30 - 22 Nov 2023 15:00 CET


Welcome to ENCCS Industry Days 2023! This event provides a comprehensive introduction to supercomputing, targeted towards a broad audience, for example:

  • Companies that have an AI solution on their laptop but are eager to run on larger datasets,
  • organizations that simulate market stocks, macroeconomic predictions, as well as life science and physics simulations,
  • public authorities working with air pollution modelling, or training neural language models,
  • and much more

Who is Industry Days for?

Industry Days is for both managers and software developers who are interested in finding out how supercomputers are used in different industrial sectors.

Join us for 2 days full of experience, exchange, and exploration of possibilities to use supercomputers and obtain support in improving your software solutions.

  • How can small businesses take advantage of HPC for free using EuroHPC JU resources?
  • What can we learn from scientific areas that traditionally use HPC?
  • How can businesses use HPC to improve their services or products?

During the event, leading people from Sweden and around the world will provide success stories and use cases, and lead discussions on the use of HPC in the industry. Check the success stories with companies and organisations that already got supercomputing access.
