The PRACE consortium (Europe’s main Petascale project) has conducted a comprehensive survey of HPC training and education needs amongst the top-tier computational users across all partner sites. The mission of the survey was to evaluate the current educational needs of PRACE HPC users by assessing existing proficiency and satisfaction in traditional HPC techniques as well as soliciting their training requirements for next-generation Petascale systems.

The study highlighted Multi-core and Hybrid MPI-OpenMP weaknesses and revealed an important need for centralised HPC training repositories and HPC technology dissemination channels.
