The JARA Partition

Applications for computing time for the next computing time period (May 01, 2018, until April 30, 2019) can be submitted from January 22 until February 23, 2018, at 5pm. Please find further information here.

The JARA Partition is the merger of shares of HPC systems in Jülich and Aachen dedicated to researchers from FZ Jülich and RWTH. Main reasons to set up this Partition in 2012 were the guaranteed amount of computing time for projects from the two regional partners on latest HPC architectures, the reduced but highly efficient assignment procedure that fosters scientific excellence, and the requirements of the funding bodies BMBF and MIWF to arrange for larger and more efficiently used HPC infrastructures.
