Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava

Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava

The Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava (STUBA) is considered as the leading technical university of technology in Slovakia and has a wide international cooperation with universities around the World (various agreements in force). STUBA participated in many International projects like the 5th and 6th Framework Program of EU, TEMPUS, COPERNICUS, UNESCO, PHARE, ESPRIT, NATO, CEEPUS, Socrates/Erasmus, and GROWTH. Its Advanced Technology Research Institute (ATRI) will be involved in the TREX project.

Role in TREX

STUBA team will be involved in the development of the TREX educational visual QMC software tool (WP6, T6.3), breakthrough applications (WP5, T5.1), and the organization of the dissemination and training events (WP6, T6.2, T6.3). The tasks will be performed at the Department of chemistry and physics of the ATRI institute. ATRI is the first and main institute at the University Science Park at STUBA, having an interdisciplinary team of researchers, engineers, PhD candidates and junior researchers. ATRI is focused on materials engineering supported by ion and plasma technologies, solid-state physics, astrophysics, computational chemistry, automation and ICT implementation in industrial processes, and mathematical modelling and simulation. The area of materials research ranges from theoretical modelling using ab-initio methods at the atomic and molecular scale, DFT methods for bulk materials and surfaces, to experimental work using accelerators and plasma-based technologies. R&D in the field of Automation and ICT aims at hardware and software development, knowledge-based systems, process- and high-level automation, data processing and security systems.

Relevant infrastructures and facilities

STUBA runs a HPC facility with the following resources: 624 CPU cores, ~2.5 TB aggregate RAM, ~220 TB of storage. In addition, all Slovak researchers in computational disciplines have access to the Slovak Infrastructure for High Performance Computing with ~4k CPUs.
