The Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) becomes the Center for National High Performance Computing (NHR). This was decided today (13.11.2020) by the Joint Science Conference - the body coordinates the science funding of the federal and state governments. This will enable scientists to use even more powerful high-performance computers at KIT in the future. With HoreKa, one of the most powerful supercomputers in Europe will be available at the Scientific Computing Center of KIT in spring 2021. The NHR Alliance has an annual budget of 62.5 million euros, a high single-digit million amount goes to KIT every year.
