VSR Computing Time Projects


The Jülich Supercomputing Centre (JSC) provides world-class supercomputers for researchers of all scientific fields who are faced with demanding and time-consuming simulations. The VSR Commission - a commission of the Scientific and Technical Council (Wissenschaftlich-Technischer Rat, WTR) of the Forschungszentrum Jülich - is responsible for the comparative peer review process and the allocation of the resources for VSR computing time projects.


Scientists who are affiliated with the Forschungszentrum Jülich are eligible to apply for VSR resources.

Available project types
