Close to 600 million Euro of budget allocated to HPC related projects in H2020

Number of HPC related H2020 projects per organisation. (Enlarge for detailed view)
8 Feb 2019 Brussels - With the last calls for HPC under Horizon 2020 having closed last year - the remaining budget has been transferred to EuroHPC JU - we can look at how many projects are funded and how large the budget is. There are a few projects for which no public data is available, so our findings are not final yet, but we have counted 107 HPC related projects with a total budget of 571 million euro. The remaining projects will bring this number over 600 million. This shows the European Union has been invested heavily in HPC during the past years. In the remaining years until 2020 this amount will even be doubled in EuroHPC JU.

We also had a look at which organisations participate in most H2020 HPC projects. By far the most successful is the Barcelona Supercomputer Centre (BSC) in Spain with 43 HPC related projects. In addition BSC is also involved in many projects that are not HPC specific. Ex aequo 2nd and 3rd are Forschungszentrum Jülich and the University of Edinburgh (EPCC), each with 19 HPC related projects, so lagging far behind BSC. On the 4th place is the first company: Bull with 15 projects in which it participates.

Have a look on the website to see the full list of organisations participating in at least 5 projects.
