The Tirant supercomputing node is part of the Spanish Supercomputing Network (RES). This network is a public distributed Singular Scientific-Technical Infrastructure (ICTS). As such a public body, it participates this year in the Open Administration Week, promoted by the Government of Spain, together with the rest of the RES nodes. The Tirant node is one of the 4 ICTS of the Valencian Community and the only RES supercomputing node in our community.

The planned activities will be carried out on March 21 and 23 on the UV Sciences campus, where the University of Valencia Computing Service (SIUV) is located, and in them it will be possible to know the resources that the node of Tirant supercomputing and the work and advantages that these facilities represent for scientific progress, presented by various top-level researchers. The activity will end with a visit to the facilities in the SIUV Data Processing Center (CPD), where the Tirant Supercomputer is located, accompanied by the technicians who make this infrastructure work.
