Participation in the project is open to SME businesses located in Galicia and northern Portugal (Minho Lima, Cávado , Alto Trás os Montes , Grande Porto Ave and Tâmega).

Our goal is working with end users within different industry sectors, involved in manufacturing, rendering, financial analysis, or any other activity that could benefit from high performance computing (HPC).

Please complete the application form to participate.

Frecuently asked questions about HPC
The interest aroused by the cloud technology in recent years and its constant evolution makes it difficult to provide a single and simple description. Also known as “the cloud” or “cloud services”, it is a paradigm that allows us to offer computing services through the Internet.
High performance computing (HPC) is the use of servers, clusters and supercomputers, in addition to software, tools, components, disk storage and services for scientific, engineering or analytical tasks that require intensive computation, abundant memory usage and data management.
- Advanced Modeling and Simulation, physical models are no longer needed. - Perform complex calculations. - High Definition 3D graphical rendering.
- More efficient product design. - Increasing the capability of data analitycs in the company. - It represents a betterment in the R&D+i capabilities of the company.
- Substantial reduction in time, effort and costs required to bring products to market. - Producing physical models is no longer needed in the test and refinement phases. - It is more flexible since tests can be repeated with different parameters.
Once we receive your application for CloudPYME free trial version, we will get back to you with instructions and credentials to access the platform through the website.
CloudPYME free trial version includes 100 compute hours.

CESGA complies with the Spanish data protection law. This guarantees that your personal data will be used exclusively with professional and/or commercial shared purposes.
Frecuently asked questions about OI
To put it briefly, OI consists on the exploitation of the companies' internal resources for the research and development of new technologies and businesses, but also on the bilateral collaboration with external organizations -i.e. not only seeking solutions for their own problems but also helping third parties by ceding internal solutions that are not being as profitable as expected.
The project aims to help SMEs based in Galicia and Northern Portugal. If you are interested in joining, just send us a message using our contact section.
Besides the benefits of joining a partner network (see “What is Open Innovation?”), participation in the project promotes a better understanding of the concept and puts you in touch with R&D projects and techniques. Within the scope of the CloudPYME project, there are other projects with competitive edge, e.g. on HPC and Cloud Computing, which resort to opensource software.
It is the companies themselves who decide what institutions can collaborate in the innovation process within the project.
Frecuently asked questions about PLM
The demo pack is open to the manufacturing SMEs community. If you want to join the project, please fill in the registration form. We intend to work with industrial end users.
PLM is a range of capabilities that allow companies to effectively manage and innovate their products, and related services, throughout their lifecycle. There is not one unequivocal solution. The solution must adapt to the specific needs of each institution, while involving and managing every major actor in the process, with a critical security level and with functionalities adapted to cut new products start-up times and to reduce the cost of reusing data and acquired knowledge.
