Clarisse Faria-Fortecoëf

Supercomputing centre, Consortium of 31 universities, CINECA acts like a trait-d'union beetween the academic world, the sphere of pure research and the world of industry and Public Administration.

The activities of CINECA can be subdivided into two large sectors, one aimed at institutional organisations and the other, more generally, relative to the services linked to technological transfer.CINECA designs tools and technologies aimed at solving specific problems for universities and public research agencies.

Furthermore, it supplies advanced services to Public Administration and businesses, analysing their needs and offering specific solutions for the different problems.CINECA is one of Italy's main representatives in European Union projects, participating in numerous activities related to the promotion, development and diffusion of the most advanced information technologies.

On the CINECA website, it is possible to make a research on the research projects, the scholarships, the training courses, the employment opportunities, as well as to fill up a CV on line (heading “Lavoro”).
