The National Competence Center (NCC) is the reference and the single point of contact and coordination in the Czech Republic for high-performance computing (HPC) and data analysis (HPDA). Its mission is to analyze, implement, and coordinate all necessary activities and offer its services to end users to meet their needs: from access to supercomputers and technology consulting to providing training for industry, public administration, and academia.

In the Czech Republic, the National Competence Center in HPC represented by IT4Innovations aims to gather the necessary expertise to create a trans-European network of national coordination centers on topics related to HPC. The center was created under the auspices of the EuroCC project, which was approved by the European High-Performance Computing Joint Undertaking, and is funded by the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme and the Czech Republic. The EuroCC project brings together 31 European states to provide a broad portfolio of services tailored to the respective national needs of academia, public administration, and industry.
