A team of more than 40 people working in ten Québec universities.
What we do
Calcul Québec’s team of highly qualified professionals keeps the research community competitive on a national and international scale by providing access to cutting-edge digital infrastructures and ensuring that researchers have the necessary skills to use them.
We share our computing clusters—or supercomputers—with thousands of researchers, mainly in Québec, but also across Canada. They power research in physics, astronomy, genomics, health and even some more surprising fields such as music and literature.
Calcul Québec offers access to an independent infrastructure, hosted in Québec, that ensures the cultivation of expertise for the economic development of the province and country.
Our activities are structured around the following poles:
- Infrastructure and services
- General and specialized user support
Calcul Québec is devoted to providing academic and research communities with state-of-the-art computing infrastructure and expertise. This contributes to the advancement of knowledge in all branches of learning and to the training of highly qualified personnel capable of efficiently operating modern computing systems.
To carry out our mission, we rely on a network of local teams distributed across a number of universities. We stay close to Québec’s research communities, coordinating our teams centrally and keeping an eye out for complementary projects and potential synergies.
