CASTIEL

WHAT IS CASTIEL? 

The Coordination and Support Action (CSA) CASTIEL leads to cross-European networking activities between National Competence Centres (NCCs) in HPC-related topics ad-dressed through the EuroCC project. CASTIEL emphasises training, industrial interaction and cooperation, business development, raising awareness of high-performance computing (HPC)-related technologies and expertise. As a hub for information exchange and training, CASTIEL promotes networking among NCCs and strengthens idea exchange by developing best practices. The identification of synergies, challenges, and possible solutions is implemented through the close cooperation of the NCCs at a European level.

WHAT IS THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN CASTIEL AND EUROCC?

CASTIEL, the Coordination and Support Action (CSA) closely associated with EuroCC, com-bines the National Competence Centres (NCC) formed in EuroCC into a pan-European net-work. The aggregation of HPC, high-performance data analytics (HPDA), and artificial intelligence (AI) competencies demonstrates the global competitiveness of the EU partners. The two activities are the beginning of a strategic positioning of the European HPC competence and will contribute to the comprehensive independence of the mentioned technologies in Europe.
