Hessen gets two supercomputers

The state of Hessen and the federal government are to spend a combined €22.5 million on supercomputers at the Technical University of Darmstadt and the Goethe University Frankfurt.

Hessen’s research ministry announced on 26 June that the GWK, a committee of the federal education ministry and state representatives, had agreed that federal funding of €11.3m should be provided for the supercomputers.

Researchers will be able to use the computers to carry out simulations that were previously time-consuming, expensive or impossible. “The expansion of supercomputing is a crucial building block in Hessen’s digitisation strategy. These high-performance computers will help our scientists to carry out top-level research,” said Boris Rhein, the state’s research minister.
