The RNCA's computing resources are aimed at the public or private research, technology and innovation/industry communities in any scientific field. Interested parties can access them through the FCT (Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia, I.P.) national calls for tenders in accordance with the conditions under each Call or submit a request for access.

In addition to access to national resources, the EuroHPC (European Joint Undertaking for High Performance Computing) joint initiative provides a European high-end supercomputer infrastructure, including pre-exascale and petascale technology, to meet today's needs and requirements. In particular, it aims to attract users from SMEs (Small and Medium Enterprises) and the public sector. Interested parties can access it through the EuroHPC calls. The RNCA provides support to interested parties in Portuguese territory.

* Up-to-date information on national and European access calls can be found on the FCT website. The FCT support to be granted is exclusively in the form of time allocation for the use of advanced computational resources, and does not include funding of any kind, particularly with a view to financing expenses related to personnel needed for the implementation of the computational project.
