BremHLR - The Bremen Supercomputing Competence Center

The Bremen supercomputing competence center BremHLR ( was founded in 2003. It is a cooperation of the University Bremen (UB), the Jacobs University Bremen (JUB), and the Alfred Wegener Institute, Bremerhaven (AWI), and the University of Applied Sciences Bremerhaven. The center is supported by the “Bremer Senatorin für Wissenschaft, Gesundheit und Verbraucherschutz”.

BremHLR provides support to scientists in scientific computing on the computer system of the “Norddeutschen Verbund für Hoch- und Höchstleistungsrechnen (HLRN)“ as well as other national computing centers, like the John von Neumann Insitute for Computing (NIC) in Jülich. Scientific consulting in high performance computing is conducted by consultants from participating centers (ZARM/UB, CLAMV/JUB as well as the Computer Centre of AWI). In addition, user workshops and user training courses on high-performance computing are coordinated and organized.
