NVIDIA has recognized NTNU and Associate Professor Anne C. Elster's HPC lab as a research group that are expanding the frontier of massively parallel computing. For their work, NTNU is now one of the few institutions that both has been identified as a CUDA Research Center and a CUDA Teaching Center.
NVIDIA recently announced 22 New CUDA Research and Teaching Centers worldwide. NTNU was one of the eight new Research Centers. NTNU became a CUDA Teaching Center last year. According to NVIDIA, institutions recognized as a CUDA Research Center are doing world-changing research by leveraging CUDA and NVIDIA GPUs.
The CUDA Research Centers receive the following benefits:
