SURFsara trains participants at the PRACE Summer School and is involved in the organisation. Summer of HPC is a PRACE programme that offers summer placements at HPC centres across Europe to late stage undergraduates and/or master students. Up to twenty top applicants from across Europe are selected to participate each year, and applications for the program usually open in January of each year.

Participants will spend two months working on projects related to PRACE technical or industrial work.

The programme runs between July and August of each year, with a kick-off training week at the start of July attended by all participants. Flights, accommodation and a stipend are provided to all successful applicants; all participants need to bring is an interest in computing and some enthusiasm!

Prizes are awarded for the best participants.

For whom?

Late stage undergraduates and/or master students. Applications are welcome from all disciplines.


Previous experience in HPC is not required, as training will be provided. Some coding knowledge is a prerequisite but the most important attribute is a desire to learn, and share, more about HPC. A strong visual flair and an interest in blogging, video blogging or social media are desirable. A total of 25 attendees will be accepted.
