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.

POP-3 : Performance Optimisation and Productivity - A Centre of Excellence in HPC

Teratec is a partner in the European POP3 (Performance Optimisation and Productivity) project as part of Horizon Europe, the ninth framework program following Horizon 2020 and supported by EUROHPC-JU. This center of excellence brings together the best HPC experts at the European level, providing free analysis and optimization services for high-performance computing applications developed and/or used by businesses, academics, and research centers across Europe.
For Teratec, this project offers an additional opportunity to support its members, as well as all European organizations (industries, research centers, laboratories), by enabling them to optimize their applications to increase efficiency, which generally leads to a significant return on investment.
By way of illustration, POP has already achieved remarkable goals, and here are some "Success Stories":

• Performance analysis by POP experts improved the performance of a CFD application by up to six times.

• Thanks to the efforts of POP experts, the execution speed of a magnetic materials study code was increased by 46%.

• The intervention of POP experts reduced the execution time of parallel simulations of astrophysical fluid dynamics code by 40%.

CASTIEL-2: 8th "Code of the month" : FALL3D and OpenPDAC by CHEESE CoE


The codes FALL3D and OpenPDAC are able to simulate different phenomena associated with explosive volcanic eruptions. FALL3D models atmospheric consequences of volcano outbreaks including the dispersal and sedimentation of particles and ashes. After the outbreak of Cumbre Vieja in autumn 2021, CoE ChEESE's related urgent computing services have been used to advise the local authorities of La Palma e.g. on rerouting flights or issuing warnings or confinements for the population. OpenPDAC simulates phenomena (pyroclastic flows, ballistic ejecta) associated with phreatic explosions and occurring at a local scale. These kind of eruptions represent an important hazard, as testified by the recent events at Ontake (Japan) and White Island (new Zealand), and in the framework of the ChEEse project the code OpenPDAC will be used for a first assessment of hazard from phreatic explosion at Vulcano island (Italy).

CASTIEL-2 :Seventh "Code of the month" : GROMACS by BioExcel


GROMACS is a molecular simulation suite with tens of thousands of users worldwide in both academia and industry.
Biomedical applications (biomolecules) are likely the most common, but use of GROMACS is far from limited to that.
It is also popular in other areas that require atomistic simulations such as polymer physics and (nano)flow
