“While our focus is currently on the Austrian research community, we are more than happy to onboard scientists from around the world. Moving forward, we’re also planning to win new users by opening up our innovative cloud platform to research-intensive businesses. In supercomputing, economies of scale are essential: the more users we can attract, the more compute capacities our researchers can use for their projects to make new discoveries faster and shape the future.”

Ronny Zimmermann

The effort is driven by the Austrian Academy of Sciences (OeAW), the largest Austrian non-university institution for science and research with 25 research institutes, two of which are founding partners of the Vienna BioCenter. Additional partners include the University of Vienna, the Medical University of Vienna, and the global, research-driven pharmaceutical company Boehringer Ingelheim.

To help tackle the toughest research questions, Vienna BioCenter established the Cloud Infrastructure Platform (CLIP), a high-performance computing (HPC) service currently used by 14 research institutes and open to researchers around the world. One of Austria’s largest supercomputer clusters, CLIP offers an advanced and easy-to-use cloud service with over 400 standard tools for high energy physics, subatomic physics, mathematics, sound mechanics, space exploration, and the full array of life sciences.
