Referring to HPC

HPC MAISTER is part of the national supercomputing centre. According to the principle of open access to public research infrastructure, it is available to all researchers employed in public research organisations. Throughout the duration of the HPC RIVR project (until 31 March 2021), using the supercomputing system is free of charge for researchers employed in public research organisations. For researchers employed in private companies, the HPC Maister system is available to a limited extent by paying the market usage price.

When submitting applications for national, European and other international projects, you can refer to the HPC MAISTER system as your own available equipment. For this purpose you can use the following statement in whole or in part:
