CaSToRC’s personnel is an integral component and we will ensure that a training plan is in place so that our staff acquires new knowledge and skills, adapts to change and performs optimally their duties. Visits and staff exchanges with other National Competence Centres will be planned according to the competencies that need to be developed. Technical personnel of CaSToRC will participate in train the trainers’ programs so that they can provide effective user support. Coordination with other National Competence Centres will be sought for code- development when local expertise is not sufficient. Staff of the high-level support team will also be trained to effectively provide user support, according to the needs of local users.

Following the identification of the needs of the Cypriot user communities in CaSToRC will coordinate an appropriate training program. It will also join training programs of other HPC competence centers exploring synergies among them. CaSToRC will open its training programs to researchers from the Eastern Mediterranean consolidating its hub role in the region, by providing travel support to participants in the events that will be organised or co-organised by it.

High Level Support Teams

The CaSToRC National Competence Center will build a high-level support team that will coordinate with the other EuroHPC Competence Centers in order to deliver:

  • The deployment of state-of-the-art infrastructure and services
  • Training programs and user support
  • Code development and co-design
  • Entrepreneurship programs
  • Integration of local users and SMEs into the European landscape

Staff of the high-level support team will be trained to effectively provide user support, according to the needs of local users and engage with users to plan regular training events targeting their needs.

The High-level support team will facilitate access to scientific and technical expertise and knowledge pools by contacting researchers at the various research institutions to provide support for accessing HPC infrastructure, assess training needs, provide tools for code development and in general promote the intake of HPC and novel computer architectures.
