Riga Technical University (RTU) High Performance Computing (HPC) Centre is an initiative under the supervision of the Office of Vice-Rector for Research and it aims at providing support to application of e-science technology in research:

  • access to modern computing infrastructure (supercomputer, data storage facilities);
  • technical support in transferring computing problems to HPC;
  • access to European e-infrastructures;
  • scientific software for research and studies;
  • training and seminars.

HPC Centre was established in June 2012 as a follow up to computing activities initiated by the project BalticGrid (2005‒2010) within the Sixth and Seventh EU Framework Programmes. Since then the Centre has accumulated experience in supporting wide range of engineering applications at RTU and providing services also to other research institutions in Latvia. HPC Centre is open to cooperation with industry.
