PRACE Training Centres (PTCs) carry out and coordinate training and education activities that enable both European academic researchers and European industry to utilise the computational infrastructure available through PRACE.


The long-term vision is that PTCs will become the hubs and key drivers of European high-performance computing education.


The 6 PTC centers throughout Europe are: Barcelona Supercomputing Center (Spain), CINECA - Consorzio Interuniversitario (Italy), CSC - IT Center for Science Ltd (Finland), EPCC at the University of Edinburgh (UK), Gauss Centre for Supercomputing (Germany) and Maison de la Simulation (France).


The students can benefit from the hands-on sessions and communication with internationally renowned instructors. Participants will be issued a Certificate of Attendance. PTC courses are attended by specialists from across Europe and all lectures and materials are in English. The PTCs do not charge fees for their courses. The number of seats for all courses is limited.


Information and registration about all PTC course can be found on the Prace training portal:


The French PTC associates some of the main HPC actors in France: The three national supercomputing centers that operate Tier1 and Tier0 systems under the aegis of Genci and who have a long and successful training record for HPC, INRIA the French national research agency dedicated to computational and information sciences, and Maison de la Simulation, which coordinates the network.
