Caption. The table lists the open calls for EuroHPC from the 2019 Work Programme and open calls for H2020 with an HPC component (not all budget has been transferred to EuroHPC).  We indicate the percentage of funding a project partner can get from the EuroHPC or H2020 funding. When this percentage is not 100%, additional funding can sometimes be provided by national funding programmes. The estimated budget depends on what the countries will contribute. Also, with some calls budget can shift from one topic to another.

EuroHPC grants - coverage by countries

EuroHPC  research grants will in general only cover  50% of a project proposal's budget. Each partner in an accepted project proposal must pay the other 50% from other sources. The general idea is the countries' national research and development programmes cover this. For the calls that opened on 25 July 2019, about half of the participating EuroHPC countries already know if they will make money available, and whether that amount has a maximum or not. For some calls there are different percentages for profit and not-for profit organisations. Yes, it is complicated. About half of the countries do not know yet what they do. This makes it very difficult for organisations to start working in an international consortium on preparing proposals as the first call already closes in November.

The data in the attached table is taken from information from the EuroHPC JU site and from own research. Please consult your national organisation before making any commitments for participating in a project.

The total amount of committed budget does not match the EuroHPC central contribution. This is because many countries did not provide details yet. Also some countries do not allocate a specific budget, but will just provide a contribution on a case by case basis.

If you spot information that is incorrect, please let us know.

The information on the call can be found at: First EuroHPC research and innovation calls are now open for submission .

Please always consult the latest official version of the call documents to be sure:

Please take care that the documents do not contain a change log. 

Caption: The countries that intended to contribute to partners in their country in approved EuroHPC projects to the EuroHPC calls that opened on 25 July 2019 and that are now closed. Numbers in millions of Euro. Green: a country will contribute. Red: a country will not contribute. White: the country does not know (yet). The numbers are the maximum of the budget that has been allocated by a country. 

Some countries co-fund up tot 50% for each activity, and each type of organisation. Other countries have very complex schemes.

Please note some actions are 100% funded so do not require national co-financing.
