The focus of the talk was on enlightening researchers about how they can effectively utilize these resources in their projects.

- It was very much appreciated that HPC2N came to Sundsvall. We received very good information, and it also gave us the opportunity to ask questions and give feedback to the staff at HPC2N. Being able to meet in this way provides good conditions for a better use of HPC2N's computing resources, says Mårten Sjöström from Mid Sweden University, member of the HPC2N steering group.

Accompanying Paolo were Björn Torkelsson, Åke Sandgren, and Pedro Ojeda May from HPC2N at Umeå University. They conducted an informative session introducing the researchers at Mid Sweden University how to utilize the computing resources at HPC2N. The session covered essential topics such as how to apply for computing resources, setting up user accounts, and initiating work with existing code in Python, Matlab, etc.
