This collaboration workshop discusses the topics common to all HPC trainers teaching online both in South America as well as in Europe. The speakers have vast experience in the digitalisation efforts done boosted by the COVID-19. The goal is to give participants an overview of training digitalisation needs and current practises on both continents. Join the workshop to listen, share and relate to experiences, and collaborate with trainers world wide through RedCLARA, SCALAC and PRACE.
