Training & Education

“Give a man a fish and you feed him for one day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.”

We want our users to be able to optimally use our HPC systems. Therefore, the MPCDF provides training and educational events  for the MPG and its partners. From the basic introduction of how to use our systems to focused advanced workshops and lectures, we give our users the means to master their work on our systems.

Courses and workshops arranged by or in collaboration with the MPCDF
