Luxinnovation invites you to their event

Luxembourg Supercomputing Day 2022

About this event

Supercomputing, or high-performance computing (HPC), is as an enabler of innovation and a driver of significant financial return. The Luxembourg Supercomputing Day 2022 will provide insights into the supercomputing world, a tool that companies – start-ups and SMEs as well as large groups – research and public administration can use to boost their innovation capacity by exploiting the value of data and place themselves ahead of competitors. The event is organised by EuroCC Luxembourg, a collaboration between Luxinnovation, LuxProvide & the University of Luxembourg.

Join us to listen to the experience of your peers, get inspired, meet potential partners and learn more about how you can benefit from Luxembourg’s supercomputing infrastructure and what support you can count on to drive your own impactful projects backed by supercomputing.

The event will provide information about the many benefits that supercomputing can bring to business and research, inspire attendees about potential use in different sectors with concrete use cases examples, and highlight the support services available in Luxembourg for organisations that want to approach the supercomputing world.
