High-Performance Computing (HPC) is a powerful technology which can significantly improve the competitiveness of business. Its application to many diverse industrial areas such as advanced engineering design, optimization, product inspection, and quality control showed a lot of benefits, like improved product quality, savings of resource, short time-to-market developments, and new application areas. Large-scale technology transfer activities of the European Commission (EC) aim at helping industry in Europe to exploit the benefits of HPC thus increasing their competitiveness. This paper presents the HPCN Preparatory, Support and Transfer Activities (PST) initiative and its HPCN Technology Transfer Node network (TTN) funded by the European Commission. Finally some typical examples of PST projects follow, focusing on technology transfer projects targeting simulation and optimization in the automotive and material-processing industries.
