GCS grants hundreds of millions of computing core hours to leading-edge national science projects. With the 20th Call for Large-Scale Projects, 13 applications met the strict qualification criteria set by the GCS Steering Committee and were awarded in total 816.3 million core hours of computing time on the three GCS HPC systems Hazel Hen, JUWELS and SuperMUC-NG.

The 17 ambitious research teams who recieved computing hours represent a wide range of scientific disciplines, including astrophysics, atomic and nuclear physics, biology, condensed matter physics, elementary particle physics, meteorology, and scientific engineering, among others.

GCS approved 23 large-scale projects during the 18th call for large-scale proposals. GCS awards large-scale allocations to researchers focused on solving the world’s most pressing problems as they relate to a wide range of disciplines.
