Dear reader,

The first part of 2018 proved to be very busy and full of dynamic events. Below you will be able to read what were the stories behind them. The first half of the 2018 was marked with 1st year review, where we would like to thank our partners for starting and developing into well-functioning consortium. The good work pays off in wide workshops attendance, from the one carried out in Linz (Austria) in February, to all three workshops carried out in Dubrovnik (Croatia), to first set of capacity building events carried out in May in Rijeka (Croatia). We are also planning several events more in the second half of 2018, with exact dates being available very soon.

Additionally, we presented InnoHPC promotional video, and you can watch it too by following the LINK.

Keep in touch,

The InnoHPC team

 

COMMUNICATION WORKSHOPS:

20th to 22nd March, 2018: THREE STRATEGIC WORKSHOPS IN DUBROVNIK, CROATIA:

 

Three strategic workshops on Sustainability Strategy for post-project activities of the InnoHPC Lab were successful. More that 30 participants from consortium members, stakeholders (external experts, business consultants, and business providers), policy makers, and HPC providers met to debate the already produced materials on sustainability of the InnoHPC Lab. Also, the main post project activities were debated and their feasibility was discussed. It was concluded that individual partners efforts are going to be necessary with several partners being more interesting in more active participation in the post project era.

EDUCATIONAL WORKSHOPS: 

 

10th – to 11th May, 2018: CAPACITIY BUILDING WORKSHOPS / TRAINING FOR SMESs AND HPC PROVIDERS IN RIJEKA/OPATIJA, CROATIA

1st InnoHPC Lab training took place on May 10th and 11th in Opatija and Rijeka and was organized by the InnoHPC Project Partner ERDF PP4 – CNRM, Centre for Advanced Computing and Modelling. 

We conducted two interconnected two-day events for different audiences. One two day event was tailored to address the needs of SMEs, where the other two-day event was tailored to address the needs of HPC providers.

SME's were dealing with HPC trends, advantages using HPC in automotive and electronic industries, HPC infrastructure, comparing the performance of desktop computer and HPC cluster, data protection, patents, applicability, VR, digital transformation guidelines etc. 

HPC Providers were dealing with Technology Transfer Process (Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) protection, data protection, HPC infrastructure, digital transformation guidelines, role of trust).

All the participants also had the opportunity to hear the presentation of the general understanding of HPC infrastructure and inspiring success stories from two companies, Arctur d.o.o. from Nova Gorica and AV Living Lab from Ljubljana.
