Supercomputers, the new European El Dorado?


They have become essential elements of our modern economies. Thanks to their phenomenal computing power, supercomputers are able to select the most effective molecules against Covid-19, to cut the time it takes to build a car by three, or even to predict natural disasters.

Their construction is the subject of a global superpower race, dominated by the United States, Japan and China. The European Union wants to catch up. To do this, it plans to invest 8 billion euros in the new generation of supercomputers. A challenge.

SME, are you ready to lift your business to Industry 4.0 ? Participate in the open call !

This call for proposals targets the highest quality experiments involving innovative, agile SMEs and with work plans built around innovation targets arising from the use of advanced HPC services. Proposals are sought that address business challenges from European SMEs from varied application domains, but preference being given to engineering and manufacturing, or sectors able to demonstrate fast economic growth or particular economic impact for Europe.

EUROCC: National Competence Centers on HPC / HPDA / IA Technologies

Within the EuroCC project under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 (H2020), 36 participating countries are tasked with establishing a single National Competence Centre (NCC) in the area of high-performance computing (HPC) in their respective countries. These NCCs will coordinate activities in all HPC related fields at the national level and serve as a contact point for customers from industry, science, (future) HPC experts, and the general public alike. The EuroCC project is funded 50 percent through H2020 (EuroHPC Joint Undertaking [JU]) and 50 percent through national funding programs within the partner countries. Teratec is the coordinator of the French Competence Center in association with CERFACS and with the participation of GENCI.

Develop innovation and business opportunities of SMEs by using HPC

Teratec is a partner of the european initiative FF4EuroHPC that aims to facilitate access to high performance computing for european SMEs and increase the innovation capacities of european industry by creating a portfolio of business applications, called "experiments" meeting the needs of SMEs, by supporting the commitments of HPC Competence Centers to SMEs, by assisting participating SMEs in the implementation of innovation related to their business application, by facilitating the expansion of the industrial community of users and service providers around HPC. In order to achieve these objectives, FF4EuroHPC has launched an "Open Call" to collect "experiments" in order to select the most innovative business applications. This call targets consortia bringing around an SME, HPC players (SIVs, HPC service providers, computation centers, etc.). Selected experiments will be funded up to 200k€.

The European Centre of Excellence for engineering applications

Excellerat brings together the European expertise needed to create a Center of Excellence in industrial engineering with a wide range of services, paving the way towards the exascale, as part of the HPC strategy driven by EuroHPC. To this end, Excellerat, which started in December 2018 for a period of 36 months, relies on six benchmark applications: Nek5000, Alya, AVBP, TPLS, FEniCS and Coda. These codes used in the industry are promising candidates for execution on exascal demonstrators, pre-exascal systems, as well as exascal machines.

An essential factor in corporate competitiveness

High Performance Simulation is both an essential factor in corporate competitiveness and an absolutely vital tool for major scientific challenges. Thus it enables experts to design products more rapidly which are better suited to customers’ requirements and furthermore to analyse and understand complex phenomena.

Promoting High Performance Simulation is, therefore, a priority both for the industrial world as well as for the academic community and provides also an opportunity for IT specialized companies.

With this objective in mind major players in these different fields have created the Ter@tec association together with local authorities keen to develop technological activities in their territory. Read more
