EuroHPC - Europe's journey to exascale HPC

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.  

On September 28, 2018  The EuroHPC Joint Undertaking (JU) was formally established by the European Council. This marks an important milestone in Europe's exascale journey.

On November 6, 2018 the first meeting of the Governance Board was held in Luxembourg.

On January 21st, 2019, EuroHPC JU published its first call: hosting entities for  pre-exascale supercomputers. See our introduction: "So you want to host a 250 million euro European pre-exascale supercomputer with EuroHPC funding?"

On February 15, 2019, the second call was opened: EuroHPC opens call for at least two petascale hosting entities - budget 30 million Euro

 

In June 2019 it was revealed that  - no surprise -  all three pre-exascale and 5 petascale propososals are accepted.

We did add a - still experimental - timeline displaying the development of EuroHPC during the past two years.

 

 

The known candidates to host pre-exascale and exascale EuroHPC systems. All pre-exascale proposals are accepted.

EuroHPC and the TOP500 of supercomputers

Almere, 2019-06-24 - EuroHPC has as its ambition to make Europe a major player in the world in supercomputing. In the TOP500 released last week in Frankfurt, Europe still plays a very modest role. This should change next year when the pre-exascale supercomputers and petascale systems for which funding was awarded earlier this month, come online by the end of next year. But where do we start from in Europe? To look at this we analysed the TOP500 lists of the past five years. Read further...

Joint PRACE IAC and EuroHPC INFRAG Workshop on Support for Industrial Users

Brussels, 2019-06-13 - On June 3, 2019, the PRACE Industrial Advisory Committee (IAC) welcomed the EuroHPC Infrastructure Advisory Group (INFRAG) to their biannual meeting to discuss user requirements for industry. The PRACE IAC was set up in 2013 to give independent advice to PRACE and has been consulted on various services including SHAPE, training and open access. Members include C-level representatives of small, medium and large firms (industry users), as well as trade associations such as NAFEMS (engineering) and CEFIC (chemistry). ETP4HPC is also represented as an observer. Read further...
