The HPC Benchmark Audit Reports consist of the three regional audits conducted in the pilot regions in Ireland, Slovenia, and Romania. The aim was to provide comprehensive in-depth knowledge about all relevant aspects of the HPC landscape in each of the three pilot regions.
This document provides a template for the development of region-specific action guidelines for enhancing innovativeness at the regional level by capitalizing on HPC.
Template for Developing Region-Specific Action Guidelines
The SME/HPC partners organized five regional workshops with regional partners from the business community in the pilot regions of Ireland, Romania, and Slovenia. These 5 events were moderated in such a way as to contribute to the strategic dialogue between HEIs and business/enterprise community, as well as to disseminate information about SME/HPC.
Development of generic HPC training outline and materials
These documents are designed and developed for SME staff to gain knowledge about HPC, understand the purpose of HPC usage, identify SME opportunities for HPC usage, and get examples of problem-solving when they are using HPC. Alongside the generic document, adjusted documents for the pilot regions Ireland, Romania, and Slovenia were prepared.
The design of a HPC Lab for Policies, Recommendations and Projects is an innovative initiative, proposed by the SME-HPC consortium which can enable European experts and HPC practitioners to establish networks and connect their ideas and expertise in order to write policies, recommendation or projects for the HPC domain. The below document sets the methodology on how to design and operationalize an HPC Policy Lab. It can be replicated by all the stakeholders aiming to develop such an instrument.
