BSC-CNS is organised into 6 core departments: Computer Sciences, Life Sciences, Earth Sciences, Computer Applications in Science & Engineering (CASE), Operations and Management.

See the Organisation Chart

The various departments have a number of scientific research groups, each headed by a team leader, which focus their activities on the study of hardware and system software for the supercomputers of the future and on the application of computer simulation to the underlying physical processes of nature, with particular focus on Life, Earth and Engineering sciences.

The support functions provide technical and operational support to internal and external researchers and scientists, collaborators and other institutions and industrial partners.
