Most of the money is planned to go to Research and Innovation actions on the one hand and on the other hand to the acquisition of petascale and pre-exascale supercomputers.
In 2019 Research and Innovation actions will take about 156 million euro from the budget. This is for three activities. In 2020 another 25 million euro is available.
In 2019 Infrastructure and HPC Operations Activities will get a budget of 40 million euro. In 2020 another 255 million euro will be allocated. So the petascale systems and the pre-financing of the pre-exascale systems will be paid from the 2020 budget.
