July 18, 2023 — After a three-year effort, partners of the RISC2 Project today gather in Brussels for a significant event titled “The future of EU-LATAM HPC collaboration.” The primary objective of this gathering was to showcase the project’s achievements to policymakers, industry heads, and HPC experts, and to stimulate a conversation about the path ahead for further collaboration between the two regions in the realm of high-performance computing (HPC).
The meeting will feature presentations highlighting the accomplishments of the RISC2 project, showcasing the advancements made in HPC research, technology development, and collaborative efforts between Latin America and the European Union. Researchers from both regions will discuss the potential of HPC as a catalyst for innovation and problem-solving, emphasizing its significance in addressing global challenges effectively.
Moreover, the event will serve as an opportunity for policymakers to engage in meaningful discussions, shaping the roadmap for future bi-regional collaboration in the field of HPC. By fostering a collaborative environment and sharing best practices, the RISC2 project aims to enable policymakers to leverage HPC technologies and international partnerships for sustainable development, economic growth, and societal well-being. The participation in the event is free, but registration is mandatory. Registration form available here.

About the RISC2 Project
The project RISC2 aims to strengthen collaboration between Latin America and the European Union in High-Performance Computing (HPC). One of the project’s main goals is to raise awareness among policymakers about the potential of international collaboration in HPC to tackle global challenges, such as climate change, health threats, and energy transition, and promote the exchange of best practices between research communities in both regions. Throughout the project lifecycle, the RISC2 Consortium has participated in policy dialogues, supported international training events, established an HPC Observatory and produced up-todate reports that describe the HPC ecosystem in Latin America. The EU funds RISC2 under the Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme. It is led by the Barcelona Supercomputing Center and brings together 16 partners from 12 countries.
