Applying for a BayernKI project#

BayernKI will provide HPC-/AI-resources for researchers from Bavarian Universities and Bavarian Universities of Applied Sciences. NHR@FAU and LRZ in Garching will host the hardware and offer training, support and services.

Please note that the resources currently available for BayernKI projects are limited. A considerable extension of these resources will be installed in late 2024. Until then, the BayernKI resource access is under a test status.

Information about the systems from LRZ are available in LRZ's documentation.
