The MatriCS platform is mainly composed of a high performance computing cluster. It pools scientific equipment for high performance computing, storage, visualization, digitization and interaction. The objective is to provide research and the socio-economic world with a unique resource center for digital sciences. It offers high performance computing, 3D digitization (monuments, terrains, ...) and can be used to train students, university staff and industrialists to use the platform's equipment and software.

The MatriCS platform is part of a multidisciplinary context and serves, for instance, Research Units such as MIS and LTI (Computer Science), LAMFA (Mathematics), LRCS (Battery), LG2A (Chemistry), GEC and EDYSAN (Biology) or LNFP (Medicine) and LPMC.
