The Swiss National Supercomputing Center (CSCS)is operated by ETH Zurich and is located in Lugano, Switzerland. CSCS develops and provides the key supercomputing capabilities required to solve important problems to science and/or society. The center enables world-class research with a user lab that is available to domestic and international researchers through a transparent, peer-reviewed allocation process. Its resources are open to academia and available to users from industry and the business sector.
The mission of the Scientific Computing Support Unit is to enable scientists from all computational domains to make the most efficient use of CSCS leading-edge supercomputing resources. This unit is responsible to build bridges between the user and various units at CSCS, at a larger scale also among the various Swiss computational research communities.
