To reach Exascale computing (1018 FLOPs), current supercomputers must achieve an energy efficiency “quantum leap” that allows this level of computation to be done at around 20 Megawatts. This will only be possible if we can target all layers of the system, from the software stack to the cooling system.
ANTAREX proposes a holistic approach capable of controlling all the decision layers in order to implement a self-adaptive application optimized for energy efficiency.
The CHIC project aims at developing cutting edge ICT tools, services and secure infrastructure to foster the development of elaborate and reusable integrative models (hypermodels) and larger repositories so as to demonstrate benefits of having both the multiscale data and the correponding models readily available. Although the broader VPH domain is the primary target of the hypermodelling infrastructure to be developed by CHIC, the primary application domain will be cancer and in silico oncology. In the mid and long term CHIC aims to pave the way for reliable in silico clinical trials, lying at the heart of the vision of in silico medicine, and subsequently for patient individualized treatment optimization based on in silico experimentation.
ENVRIplus is a Horizon 2020 project, aiming to create a more coherent, interdisciplinary and interoperable cluster of Environmental RIs across Europe, thus making their products and solutions easier to use with each other, improving the cost/benefit ratio of the RI operations and fostering holistic understanding of the Earth System processes and feedbacks.
EUDAT2020 builds on the foundations laid by the first EUDAT project, strengthening the links between the CDI and expanding its functionalities and remit. Covering both access and deposit, from informal data sharing to long-term archiving, and addressing identification, discoverability and computability of both long-tail and big data, EUDAT2020’s services will address the full lifecycle of research data.
EuHIT is a consortium that aims at integrating cutting-edge European facilities for turbulence research across national boundaries, in order to significantly advance the competitive edge of European turbulence research with special focus on providing the knowledge for technological innovation and for addressing grand societal challenges.
Fortissimo is a collaborative project that will enable European SMEs to be more competitive globally through the use of simulation services running on a High Performance Computing cloud infrastructure. The project is coordinated by the University of Edinburgh and involves 38 partners including Manufacturing Companies, Application Developers, Domain Experts, IT Solution Providers and HPC Cloud Service Providers from 10 countries. The project is funded by the European Commission within the H2020-FoF-2015 Programme.
With more than 130 research institutions from Europe and around the world on board and hundreds of scientists in a myriad of fields participating, the Human Brain Project is the most ambitious neuroscience project ever launched. Its goal is to develop methods that will enable a deep understanding of how the human brain operates. The knowledge gained will be a key element in developing new medical and information technologies.
HPC-Europa3 aims at maintaining the persistency of a high quality service of transnational access to the most advanced HPC infrastructures available in Europe for the European research science community. European researchers could rely on the existence of such transnational access activity for almost two decades, and the main aim of this new innovative 3rd edition of HPC-Europa series is to fill the gap left in the four years since the end of the last initiative has ended.
MaX was born to support developers and end users of advanced applications for materials simulations, design and discovery, and works at the frontiers of the current and future High Performance Computing (HPC) technologies.
MaX is one of the eight ‘European Centers of Excellence for HPC applications’ supported by the EU.
ONDA SOLARE è il nuovo progetto di ricerca in carico al CRIF che ha l'obbiettivo di sviluppare un percorso integrato per la progettazione concettuale, funzionale e costruttiva di un veicolo elettrico solare dalle straordinarie innovazioni. E di realizzarlo in meno di 2 anni. Il progetto si basa sull'utilizzo massivo degli strumenti di ingegneria concorrente, quale approccio essenziale per lo sviluppo di un prodotto unico nel suo genere, dall'alto contenuto tecnologico, soprattutto in termini di materiali, strutture, processi e delle relative logiche di ottimizzazione.
The objectives of PRACE-4IP are to build on and seamlessly continue the successes of PRACE and start new innovative and collaborative activities proposed by the consortium. These include: assisting the transition to PRACE 2.0; strengthening the internationally recognised PRACE brand; continuing advanced training which so far provided more than 15.000 person- training days to over 4700 persons, preparing strategies and best practices towards exascale computing, coordinating and enhancing the operation of the multi-tier HPC systems and services, and supporting users to exploit massively parallel systems and novel architectures.
