How to find European HPC research and innovation funding - EuroHPC
On these pages, the team of Primeur Magazine keeps you up to date on the EuroHPC developments. EuroHPC is a joint collaboration between European countries and the European Union about developing and supporting exascale supercomputing by 2022/2023. The EuroHPC declaration, signed on March 23 2017 signed by 7 countries marked the beginning of EuroHPC and of this portal.
null How to find European HPC research and innovation funding
All H2020 funding for HPC has been transferred to EuroHPC, has it not? All EuroHPC projects are funded fifty-fifty by EuroHPC and participating countries, are they not? The answers may come as a surprise to you: there is still a considerable amount of HPC funding that surfaced in H2020 and for some research projects the EuroHPC funding is 100%. To help you in your quest to find the right HPC funding opportunity we have compiled a list of all open and future EuroHPC and H2020 HPC Calls.
With the latest addition to the overall H2020 budget for 2020, two dedicated Calls (re)-appeared in H2020 - so these are not managed by EuroHPC. The most notable Call is a Call for Centres of Excellence in Exascale Computing with a total budget of 20 million euro.
In EuroHPC not everything is co-financed with national funds. There is a small support project funded for 100% with EuroHPC money, which makes sense. However, also projects under the topic "Stimulating the innovation potential of SMEs" is funded for 100%. This makes less sense, as this would be the exact same percentage as under H2020, so why transfer it to EuroHPC in the first place?
For the bigger research projects for which the Call closes early next year, the percentages differ from topic to topic depending on whether you are a profit or a non-profit organisation.
And, of course, some countries will co-finance EuroHPC projects and some countries will not.

Spain and Italy add members to their pre-exascale consortia
Helsinki, 2019-09-19 - Several European countries joined the pre-exascale consortia led by BSC in Spain and CINECA in Italy. The Spain-led consortium added Ireland and Romania in addition to Portugal, Turkey and Croatia that were already member. The Italy-led consortium is expanded with Austria and Slovakia. Hungary and Slovenia were already member. The Finnish-led consortium is with 9 members still the biggest. Read further...
France is preparing to host an EuroHPC exascale system in 2022/2023
Almere, 2019-09-16 - Genci, the French national supercomputing organisation, has published its 5-year Strategic Plan 2019-2023. Genci acts as the link between the French governement, the French HPC users, and the French national supercomputers. It also interacts with European initiatives including PRACE and EuroHPC. Its strategic plan focuses on the main goals for HPC in France in the next 5 years. The strategic plan also includes an evaluation of the previous five-year plan. The Strategic Plan 2019-2023 defines a number of strategic objectives. The most interesting one is the concrete plan to position France as hosting country for an EuroHPC exascale system by 2022/2023.

CSC published four interviews about EuroHPC and LUMI supercomputer
Helsinki, 2019-09-16 - CSC, who is leading the EuroHPC LUMI consortium, has published four interviews summarised in an article "EuroHPC highlights Finnish know-how, increases Finnish research prospects and enables more expert resources for science and business innovations". The persons interviewed are Jyrki Katainen, Vice-President of the European Commission and Commissioner responsible for the EU's employment, growth, investments and competitiveness; Jaakko Hirvola, CEO of Technology Industries of Finland; Ilkka Niemelä, President of Aalto University; and Kimmo Koski, Managing Director of CSC.

Which countries match the EuroHPC budget for the open Research and Innovation calls?
Almere, 2019-07-26 - The EuroHPC grants will 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 yesterday, about half of the participating EuroHPC countries already know if they will make money available, and whether that amount has a maximum or not. Yes, it is complicated. About half of the countries do not know yet. 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. Read further...
