Cineca (Consorzio Interuniversitario Cineca)

Cineca is a non profit Consortium, made up of 70 Italian universities, 4 Italian Research Institutions and the Italian Ministry of Education.

Today it is the largest Italian computing centre, one of the most important worldwide. With more seven hundred employees, it operates in the technological transfer sector through high performance scientific computing, the management and development of networks and web based services, and the development of complex information systems for treating large amounts of data.


It develops advanced Information Technology applications and services, acting like a trait-d'union between the academic world, the sphere of pure research and the world of industry and Public Administration.


The former OpenAire projects CASPUR and Cilea (Consorzio Interuniversitario Lombardo per L'Elaborazione Automatica) were merged to Cineca.
