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. Meanwhile there are 15 countries that have joined EuroHPC. Poland will sign as 16th member in the coming days (news from 2018-04-19). However it is not certain yet whether Cyprus will sign the EuroHPC JU from the start (News from 2018-05-01)
