Industry relations

The Industry Relations Team of the Jülich Supercomputing Centre

  • manages industry-related research projects
  • channels commissioned work to experts in the HPC centre
  • provides the contact for the provision of computing time to industry.

It serves as a head office for industry outreach by advertising the expertise of the JSC provided by the Simulation Laboratories and Cross-Sectional Teams to industrial companies in the fields of engineering, biology, medicine, and physics. Thereby, the team aims at establishing new industrial collaborations based on both commercial and third-party funded relations.

In other words:
We open doors and create connections.


  • Provision of taylor-made computing solutions for the industry
  • Knowledge transfer and consulting in high performance computing and associated research fields (engineering, biology, medicine, and physics)
