Over 700 million euro of budget allocated to e-Infrastructure related projects in H2020 - close to 600 million euro to HPC related projects

22 Feb 2019 Almere - Including the calls that closed early last year, more than 700 million euro of budget has been allocated to e-Infrastructure related projects. This can be concluded from data collected and aggregated in the e-IRG e-Infrastructure Knowledge Base maintained by the e-IRGSP projects. The Knowledge Base counts basic e-Infrastructure projects, European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) projects, and Research and HPC projects with a strong e-Infrastructure component. With 140 million euro of budget the GÉANT projects (GN4-1 and GN4-2) get the biggest amount of money. EOSCHub, with 33 million euro is the third largest funding project. In total, the Knowledge Base lists close to 100 e-Infrastructure projects, providing details about each one.

From the Knowledge Base we can also see which organisations are most successful in getting H2020 e-Infrastructure projects. There is a list with all organisations that are partner of at least 5 e-Infrastructure projects. There are 62 of those. CNRS in France with 22 and CNR in Italy with 21 projects are the largests in number of projects. EMBL is third.

With the last calls for HPC under Horizon 2020 having closed last year - the remaining budget for H2020 has been transferred to EuroHPC JU. So, the list for HPC related projects in H2020 will not change that much in the coming two years. 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 (including EPI and PRACE-IP6) will bring this number to over 600 million euro. This shows the European Union has been investing 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 Center (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. There are only 42 organisations with 5 projects or more. So, in HPC the projects are concentrated by fewer organisations than is the case in e-Infrastructures.

You can have a look on the Knowledge Base website to see the full list of organisations participating in at least 5 projects for both e-Infrastructures and HPC.
