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 analyse, 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 centres on topics related to HPC. The centre was created under the auspices of the EuroCC project, which was approved by the European High-Performance Computing Joint Undertaking (EuroHPC JU), and was funded by the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme and the Czech Republic.

From January 2023 the project continues under the name EuroCC 2. It will be funded by the Digital Europe Programme. The mission of EuroCC 2 is to continue the establishment of a network of National Competence Centres in the most efficient way, while continuing to address differences in the maturity of HPC deployment across Europe. The main task of the project is to support national centres in setting up their individual operational frameworks while accessing and making the most of the experience and expertise currently available at the national and European level. The main goal is to drive collaboration, the exchange of best practices, and knowledge at the European level, as well as to accelerate the improvement of national and thus European capabilities.
