FCCN, FCT's National Scientific Computing Unit, promotes the development of the National Network for Advanced Computing (RNCA), coordinating national advanced computing resources, fostering cooperation between the various centres involved and developing national and international partnerships with other entities. In this context, regular Calls are promoted to technologically support advanced computing projects in all scientific domains.

In addition to the national Calls, there is the European initiative EuroHPC JU that promotes regular Calls to access its supercomputers, allowing the development of larger computational projects. The goal of the EuroHPC JU is to contribute to placing the European Union at the forefront of high performance computing technologies, supporting the development of exascale supercomputers.
