Sine its création in 2007, GENCI promotes numerical simulation and HPC not only among academic researchers but also among industrials, and with Bpifrance et Inria, in a specific program (HPC-PME) for SMEs.

The French national computing resources are also open to industrials users (big companies as well as SMEs) for open R&D. The demand for computing resources has to be led by an academic partner and submitted during GENCI's project calls. The results of the project have to be published at the end of the allocation time.

Under these conditions and on the basis of a technical and scientific assessment of the projects, access to GENCI's resources will be free and for one year.
