SME/HPC is European project co-funded by Erasmus+ Programme, where Arctur is participating with the aim to facilitate study visits, to provide real-life experiences and to develop a set of HPC training programmes.

SME/HPC takes a pioneering step towards improving the awareness about the innovative potential of HPC by SMEs by co-designing tailor-made courses delivering a coherent set of competences required for the application of HPC in SME and micro-enterprise contexts.  SME/HPC begins with a strategic dialogue yielding an assessment of the required HPC competences, continues with the development of innovative strategies for raising HPC awareness and building HPC skills, and finishes with testing the new educational material with HEIs and enterprises. Three semi-peripheral regions will pilot the SME/HPC methodologies of HEI-Business engagement and the HPC education material.

The key beneficiaries of SME/HPC are enterprises, with a particular focus on SMEs, acquiring both HPC competences and access to hard infrastructure. Furthermore, the positive experience and increased collaborative and cooperative engagement between HEIs and businesses will inspire future co-designing and co-implementation of innovative socio-economic solutions.
