How European Research is organised

European research

European Research is organised by the European Union and administered by the European Commission. There are five year plans. The current is called Horizon 2020, which will end, you guessed right,...

ETP4HPC

ETP4HPC

European Technology Platform for High-Performance Computing


ETP4HPC is the European Technology Platform (ETP) in the area of High-Performance Computing (HPC). It is an industry-led think tank comprised of European HPC technology stakeholders: technology vendors, research centres and end users. The main task of ETP4HPC is to define research priorities and action plans in the area of HPC technology provision (i.e. the provision of supercomputing systems). ETP4HPC issues and maintains a Strategic Research Agenda as a mechanism to help the European Commission define the contents of the HPC Technology Work Programmes.

European HPC Initative


The exascale race is not over, yet. Seven European countries signed a declaration in March 2017 at an HPC session at the Digital Day 2017 in Rome, aiming for the acquisition of two world-class pre-exascale supercomputers preferably starting on 2019-2020, and two world-class full exascale supercomputers preferably starting on 2022-2023. At least one of the two exascale computers should be based on high-quality competitive European technology produced in a co-design approach and its integration in at least one of the two exascale supercomputers. The European Commission reaffirmed Junker's goal of having at least one system amongst the first three in the TOP500 of the world's fastest supercomputers in 2022.

The meanwhile thirtheen countries, Croatia, Bulgaria, Greece, Switzerland, Slovenia, Belgium, Germany, Portugal, France, Spain, Italy, the Netherlands Luxembourg and the Netherlands, agreed to the work on an implementation roadmap by the end of 2017 (meanwhile planned for early 2018). That seems a little late to have an all European exascale supercomputer already 5 years later. The funding is not yet clear. How much will the thirteen countries invest? The funding available from the European Union is more or less known from the Horizon 2020 budget: 700 million euro.
