Apart from scientific and user support roles, Simon manages ICHEC's Education, Training and Outreach programme, which includes provision of training courses and workshops for academia and industry, accredited graduate teaching and student mentorships. At a European level, he leads a number of training activities in a series of PRACE implementation phase projects (funded by FP7 and H2020), including the establishment and coordination of the PRACE Advanced Training Centres (PATCs) and the establishment of ICHEC as a PRACE Training Centre (PTC) in 2017.
