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:

  1. Introductory: general usage, no coding skills required

  2. Intermediate

  3. Advanced

  4. Specialist courses & workshops

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