Using the JARA partition

Using the JARA partition


The JARA Partition consists of contingents of the high-performance computers and supercomputers installed in Aachen and Jülich. The Partition was established in 2012 and is constantly being enhanced since then.


Applications for computing time on the JARA partition can be submitted by any scientist of RWTH Aachen University and Forschungszentrum Jülich qualified in his or her respective field of research. Computing resources are allocated on the basis of independent referees' reports and according to the guidelines of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG). 

Prospective users can apply for computing time twice a year at defined periods of time, see

Technically, JARA Partition in Aachen use the same tools and processes as described in Project-based Management of Resources of the RWTH High Performance Computing. Please bear in mind


Please note the following: With the introduction of the NHR project categories we had to significantly decrease the available ressources in the JARA Partition. We strongly recommend to apply for NHR projects, if applicable.

The JARA Partition in Jülich obey the rule of JSC and is not described here.
