Summer of HPC is a PRACE (Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe) programme that offers summer placements at Cineca as well as the other PRACE HPC centres across Europe. Every year, up to 20 top applicants are selected to spend two months working on projects related to PRACE technical or industrial work, to produce a visualisation or video. The programme runs every Year in June and August. At the end of the programme, two prizes are awarded to the participants who produce the best projects and best embody the outreach spirit of the programme.
