EuroHPC: 13 neue Forschungsprojekte im Bereich Supercomputing gestartet

Berichterstattung weltweit

Im Rahmen des Gemeinsamen Europäischen Unternehmens zum Hochleistungsrechnen EuroHPC haben im April 2021 dreizehn Projekte ihre Arbeit aufgenommen. Die verschiedenen Konsortien werden an Forschungs- und Innovationsaktivitäten arbeiten, die Europa helfen sollen, im Bereich des Supercomputing global wettbewerbsfähig zu werden.

An dem 2018 gegründeten EuroHPC Joint Undertaking nehmen derzeit 32 europäische Länder teil und bündeln ihre Ressourcen mit der EU und privaten Partnern. Die Aufgabe des EuroHPC ist es, eine integrierte Supercomputing- und Dateninfrastruktur von Weltklasse in der EU zu entwickeln, bereitzustellen, zu erweitern und zu warten und ein hochgradig wettbewerbsfähiges und innovatives High Performance Computing-Ökosystem zu entwickeln und zu unterstützen.

Die neuen Projekte nutzen mehr als die vorgesehenen 70 Prozent der im Rahmen von Europa 2020 verfügbaren Mittel und decken die drei Themen des Aufrufs "Towards Extreme Scale Technologies and Applications" ab, wobei sich ein Großteil mit dem Thema "Extreme scale computing and data driven technologies" befassen wird.
