Institute for Advanced Simulation (IAS)

Navigation and service


JSC plays an important role in national and international cooperations. Our partners are renowned companies and research institutions.

JARA-HPC (Jülich Aachen Research Alliance – Section High-Performance Computing)

Forschungszentrum Jülich and RWTH Aachen University combine their expertise in JARA-HPC (Jülich Aachen Research Alliance – Section High-Performance Computing): university departments, Collaborative Research Centres of the German Research Foundation (DFG), a virtual Helmholtz institute, university courses, graduate school and elite training at the German Research School for Simulation Sciences. In the Aachen-Jülich region, university and non-university research is thus linked in a unique network.

John von Neumann Institut for Computing (NIC)

Within the framework of its John von Neumann Institute for Computing (NIC), Jülich operates the largest and longest established German supercomputing centre together with its Helmholtz partner institutes DESY (German Electron Synchrotron Foundation) and GSI (Society for Heavy Ion Research).

Gauss Centre for Supercomputing (GCS)

In the Gauss Centre for Supercomputing (GCS) founded on the initiative of the German federal minister of education Annette Schavan in 2007, JSC cooperates with the two other national supercomputing centres in Stuttgart and Munich. GCS represents German interests on an international level.


As head of the PRACE consortium (PRACE – Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe), Jülich is working on specific plans for extending the European supercomputing infrastructure and making it the best in the world. The EU approved about € 10 million for the preparatory phase lasting until 2010. Another € 10 million was contributed by the partners themselves, who come from 14 European countries. The project intends to initiate long-term developments by preparatory investigations and developments for the generation after next of supercomputers.


As a founding member of DEISA (Distributed European Infrastructure for Supercomputing Applications), together with 11 partners, JSC is developing methods to provide scientists with simple and seamless access to the European supercomputer network.
