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)
, see Simulation Labs
  • Analysis of simulation code performance and optimization, see Cross-Sectional Team Performance Analysis
  • Consulting in hardware suitability - which hardware fits to your simulation problem?
  • Porting of simulation codes to different architectures (GPU, accelerators, etc.)
  • Computing time on HPC resources at JSC
  • Big data analytics
  • Training and education (e.g. Python, MPI, …), see courses


  • Shared and distributed memory parallelization of complex simulation codes
  • Simulation code performance analysis
  • Single-core and multi-core performance optimization of simulation codes
  • High-performance parallel I/O
  • GPU and accelerator programming
  • Specific field-related expertises as provided by the Simulation Laboratories

  • Decades of experience in running supercomputers and supporting users with highly complex simulation problems
