The EuroCC project aims to boost knowledge and use of high-performance computing (HPC) across Europe, through a network of national competence centres (NCC).

The Portuguese Competence Centre (NCC Portugal) coordinates dissemination, training, knowledge and technology transfer activities, as well as the promotion of the use of HPC. It has been a point of contact for potential users - whether from industry, science or public administration (among others).

The EuroCC project began in 2020 and is being followed by the EuroCC 2 project that started in 2023 and will last 3 years.

In Portugal, supercomputing is under development, it is expected that the arrival of Deucalion - the country's latest supercomputer - will continue to pave the way. Dissemination activities, promoted by NCC Portugal, have also been important in educating and attracting the public, namely by publishing news and use cases in more accessible language.

There are still difficulties - both in internal and external communication - and we have planned new strategies to overcome them over the next three years.

This presentation will showcase the EuroCC project and the activities carried out by NCC Portugal, particularly those of dissemination, as well as the achievements, the challenges of internal and external communication and the plans to address them.
