Training & Events


The VSC spends the necessary time on supporting and training researchers who make use of the infrastructure. It is important that calculations can be executed efficiently because this increases the scientific competitive position of the universities in the international research landscape. The VSC also organizes events to give its users the opportunity to get in touch with one another to foster new collaborations.  The annual User Day is a prime example of such an event that also give the users the occasion to discuss and exchange ideas with the VSC staff.


Training organized by the VSC is intended not only for researchers attached to Flemish universities and the respective associates, but also for the researchers who work in the Strategic Research Centers, the Flemish scientific research institutes and the industry.


The training can be placed into four categories that indicate either the required background knowledge or the domain-specific subject involved:


  • Introductory: general usage, no coding skills required

  • Intermediate

  • Advanced

  • Specialist courses & workshops


We have created a range of Online Training videos, accessible via our YouTube channel.

Discover Users Day 2019

It was a great pleasure to host our annual Users day on June 4th 2019 at the Royal Flemish Academy of Belgium for Science and the Arts in Brussels! It was a full day event that brought together users from all over Belgium, our partners and the management team of Vlaams Supercomputer Centrum, gave the participants the opportunity to be informed about the latest developments, meet our team, discuss future developments and trends, share experiences, ideas and influence the future of Supercomputing – and of course network!
