With the Center for Simulation and Data Science RWTH Aachen and Forschungszentrum Jülich will create a unique, internationally visible competence center. Within the Center, computer and data infrastructures, user support as well as methodical and disciplinary research in the fields of simulation, data analysis and HPC technologies of both partners are being consolidated.


The Center for Simulation and Data Science seeks to contribute to today’s research landscape by making the use of data analysis systems and HPC systems available to a broad spectrum of users in science and research. The aim is thus to facilitate top-level research that would not be possible without the joint activities and resources of the Center.

JARA-CSD focuses on:

  • Research – House of Simulation and Data Science, HSD
  • Training – School for Simulation and Data Science, SSD
  • Infrastructure – Infrastructure for Simulation and Datascience, ISD
  • Transfer – Simulation and Data for Society, SDS
