Abstract: The EC has defined three pillars for HPC: Next generation technologies, access for industry and academia and HPC application delivery and use. All three require a high end network, reliable security services and a trustworthy identity and access management infrastructure. The European National Research and Education Networks (NRENs) and GEANT have together built a network and set of services to meet the demands of HPC. And they will further develop this to meet the future demands of the EuroHPC programme delivering a quality and targeted set of services that distinguishes NRENs from commercial Internet providers.
