#Safetyfirst – Events at the IT Center

In November 2020, RWTH Aachen University together with TU Darmstadt were accepted into the National High Performance Computing Network (NHR Network). RWTH Aachen University and TU Darmstadt, together with the other six computing centers in the NHR network, are creating optimal framework conditions by establishing a joint infrastructure and offering the best possible support for high-performance computing for scientists* at German universities.

Within the framework of NHR4CES, new structures and new teams are being created to conduct joint, cross-university research and user support. A good cooperation between the colleagues from Aachen and Darmstadt is essential to ensure the success of the project. For this reason, we have organized a team event for the employees of both locations on September 08, 2021, to enable the best possible start by getting to know each other personally.

Statement on attacks on high-performance computing systems

May 15th, 2020 | by

Several high-performance data centres throughout Europe are currently victims of cyber attacks. Some centres have therefore blocked the access to their computing capacity  at least in parts due to security incidents to protect against (further) attacks.
