Research topics

The High Performance Computing Institute aims to become both resource center and center for research and skills. It is this latter dimension around equipment that gives the Institute its innovative and unique character both regionally and nationally.

This mid-sized computing center of 6000 cores hosted at Ecole Centrale in Nantes thanks to the Connect Talent Project from the Region Pays de la Loire will be one of the most powerful French regional centers. It will reach levels of precision not yet achieved, changing the game and releasing new potential for innovation.
