Welcome to the EESSI project documentation!


What if there was a way to avoid having to install a broad range of scientific software from scratch on every HPC cluster or cloud instance you use or maintain, without compromising on performance?

The European Environment for Scientific Software Installations (EESSI, pronounced as "easy") is a collaboration between different European partners in HPC community.

The goal of this project is to build a common stack of scientific software installations for HPC systems and beyond, including laptops, personal workstations and cloud infrastructure.

More details about the project are available in the different subsections:

The EESSI project was presented at the 6th EasyBuild User Meeting in January 2021, check the recording:
