Additionally, support for code development and optimisation by experts amongst the PRACE RI members can be applied for. In addition, PRACE has an extensive education and training effort for effective use of the RI through seasonal schools, workshops and scientific and industrial seminars throughout Europe.

Dr. Christoph Dellago (University of Vienna) and the Council Advisor will be Univ. Prof. Dr. Alexander Ostermann (University of Innsbruck).
