  • A computer cluster featuring parallel computing utilities
  • High performance computing units with GPUs
  • Other convenient services, among which: VPN, SSH, and private source control repositories.

Finally, it is also worth mentioning that Lisbon offers a high quality of life while being one of the least expensive capitals in Europe. Check it yourself here.
