DHPC is an initiative of the TU Delft in order to meet the increasing amount of computing power that is needed at the TU Delft campus. DHPC is both for developing better high-performance simulation packages for researchers, but also for the training of BSc, MSc and PhD students. Not only is computing time and hardware needed, a complete ecosystem (hardware, software, peopleware and mathware) is being developed in order to play a leading role in the forefront of High Performance Computing. DHPC is expected to open in June 2021.

The development of DHPC is not done in isolation. There’s a close collaboration with ICT, data stewards, researchers and teachers at the TU Delft. Furthermore, after a start-up period, collaboration with other Dutch universities (EUR, Leiden, 4TU) and international universities will be of primary importance.
