Scientific Description
Mission and objectives
Since its creation in 2007 by the Public authorities, GENCI is working to increase the use of numerical simulation and high performance computing (HPC) for boosting competitiveness within the French economy, across all scientific and industrial fields.GENCI’s role is to implement the national strategy for equiping in HPC resources the three national computing centres and making the systems available for French researchers; to support the creation of an integrated European high performance computing ecosystem; to work to promote numerical simulation and high performance computing within the academic and industrial communities.GENCI is a “civil company” (société civile) under the French law, and 49% owned by the State, represented by the ministère en charge de l’Enseignement supérieur et de la recherche, 20% by the CEA, 20% by the CNRS, 10% by the Universities, which are represented by the Conférence des présidents d’Université, and 1% by Inria.GENCI has an annual budget of €30 million.
