Within compute projects the HLRN users have the opportunity to access large resources of compute time on the HLRN system. After the Scientific Board has positively evaluated the project proposals following scientific criteria, compute time contingents are assigned to the compute projects.
A list of the present HLRN compute projects, counting more than 200, illustrates the broad spectrum of research areas in the HLRN alliance. This covers application sciences as well as scientific computing areas. The core areas of these contributions focus to the fields of expertise in the HLRN. Examples of the fields of expertise in the application areas are presented here.
