Designing and implementing the first pan-European High Performance Computing (HPC) pilot Master’s programme. This is the main task of the newborn consortium of European universities, research/supercomputing centres and industrial partners that includes SISSA and ICTP Master in High Performance Computing as selected members. With a total budget of EUR 7 million, it will develop a higher education programme to educate students and experts skilled in the HPC field.

Professor Luca Heltai, Director of MHPC says: "SISSA and ICTP, co-founders of the MHPC Specializing Program, have been pioneers in educating experts in High Performance Computing. Today, we are proud to be part of the first pan-European program to create an HPC master's degree and educate the next generation of HPC experts”.

The consortium, lead by University of Luxembrug, was selected following a call for proposals launched in March 2021 by EuroHPC Joint Undertaking, a European initiative aiming to develop a world-class supercomputing and data infrastructure in the EU and to support a highly competitive and innovative HPC ecosystem.
