The training within the framework of the EUROCC2 project – supercomputers application in the industry
On the second day of the XXVII scientific-professional conference, a training session was organized – application of supercomputers in industry and examples of good practices. The training was conducted as a part of the second phase of the EuroCC2 project - National Competence Centres within the framework of EuroHPC which is financed by the funds of the Joint Undertaking for European High-Performance Computing (EuroHPVC JU) and it continues with the promotion of supercomputer application at the national level by identifying relevant users and aligning their needs with available resources in the national centres of competencies for supercomputing. The project supports the development of innovative solutions by targeted participants in the private and public sector by providing support to interested end users in the use of HPC/HPDA/AI. The University of Donja Gorica (UDG) and the University of Montenegro (UoM) participate in the EuroCC2 project on behalf of the National Centre of Competencies for high-performance computing of Montenegro.
Regarding aforementioned, the participants had the opportunity to hear Panayiota Katsamba, representative of the National Centre of Competencies of Cyprus (NCC Cyprus) and examples of good practice regarding the empowerment of industry and application of high-performance computing in it. Tina Crnigoj Marc, on behalf of the National Centre of Competencies in HPC Slovenia and Saso Knez, on behalf of the Shark Aero Company presented an example of good practice regarding application of an open-source software package in the aero industry.
Doc. Luka Filipovic, PhD, on behalf of the National Centres of Competencies in HPC of Montenegro (NCC Montenegro) presented examples of good practices implemented by NCC Montenegro – activities based on the use of high-performance computing (HPC) and artificial intelligence (AI) for application in industrial domains defined by the Strategy of Smart Specialization (2019-2024) for Montenegro. The training participants had the opportunity to hear about the creation of SaaS solution, based on machine learning and data gathering, which will enable financial institution and other companies to significantly improve personalized banking and payments services to their clients – an innovative solution jointly implemented by the Fleka company and the Faculty of Information Systems and Technologies, UDG. The solution was presented by Marko Lekovic, on behalf of the Fleka company. In addition to the above, the attendees were addressed by Ivan Soc, FiveG and Ivan Boskovic on behalf of the Čikom company.
During the second part of the training, the participants had the opportunity to hear about strategies and uses-cases as initiators of innovative solutions which are applied within the framework of the National centres of competencies in HPC of Turkey, Romania, Netherlands and the North Macedonia.
The goal of the training was the presentation of success stories and use cases in the application of high-performance computing and the use of available resources in the National centres of competencies in industry and networking with National centres of competencies within the EuroCC2 as well.
About 140 (in-person and online) representatives of the research, academic and business community participated in the training.
On the second day of the "Information Technologies" conference, three sections were held in parallel in the morning hours, in the "Žabljak" hotel, the "Gorske oči" hotel, and in the virtual room where visitors are present exclusively online.
