Consulting & Training

We hold regular Code & Data Clinic sessions where researchers can stop by to get help with their own source code. The next Code & Data Clinics will be announced by email and in our news section.

To learn new skills or improve existing skills, researchers can also participate in our courses and workshops on various problem of scientific computing that we developed based on the needs of our users.
