March 8, 2023 — The European High Performance Computing Joint Undertaking (EuroHPC JU) launched a new call to select and support Centers of Excellence (CoEs) in HPC to prepare the transition towards exascale and future post-exascale performance in Europe.
The selected CoEs should implement concrete actions to increase the performance of HPC applications and exploit the exascale and post exascale computing capabilities. The goal is to develop or scale up existing application codes towards these advanced performances, resulting in tangible benefits mainly for scientific challenges.
Adapting applications to exascale and future post-exascale performance is a major challenge that requires significant changes in application codes, in some cases involving a complete rethink or substantial code re-engineering and rewrite.
More Call Details
This call HORIZON-EUROHPC-JU-2023-COE-01 is open for submissions until June 8, 2023, 17:00 (CET).
Applications are invited to identify one of the following application areas:
- Personalized Medicine/ Digital Twin of the human body.
- Human Brain research & neurological disorders.
- Energy: optimizing energy consumption and supporting the transition to a reliable and low carbon and clean energy society.
- Performance optimization: analysis and assessment, tools and optimization and productivity services for HPC academic and industrial code(s) (including support to selected Centers of Excellence).
Only one proposal will be selected per topic identified above and a maximum total of four proposals will be selected as a result of this call.
The call is funded by Horizon Europe, the EU funding program for research and innovation with an EU contribution up to EUR 3 million (US$3.16m) per project.
The participation to this call is limited to legal entities established in Member States and legal entities established in countries associated to Horizon Europe that are members of the EuroHPC Joint Undertaking. Proposals including entities established in countries outside the scope specified in the call/topic/action will be ineligible.
The selected projects are expected to start on 1 January 2024 for a period of three years. More details and all relevant documents concerning the call are available on the EU Funding & tender opportunities portal and in the EuroHPC JU website.
This topic builds on and complements the HORIZON-EUROHPC-JU-2021-COE-01-01: Centers of Excellence preparing applications in the Exascale era.
Proposals should ensure collaboration with other Centers of Excellence for HPC applications, and other national and EU funded activities that focus on similar or complementary objectives for HPC codes and applications, in order to maximise the synergies and optimise such codes and applications for current and future architectures of EuroHPC supercomputers. This includes participation in the common continuous integration and deployment platform developed by CoEs selected in call HORIZON-EUROHPC-JU-2021-COE-01 and the associated Coordination and Support Action CASTIEL 2.
The European High Performance Computing Joint Undertaking (EuroHPC JU) is a joint initiative created in 2018. Pooling together the resources of the European Union, 32 European countries and three private partners, it has the objective of making Europe a world leader in supercomputing.
