SHAPE Second Call awards 11 innovative projects


7 Apr 2015 Brussels - After the success of the SHAPE Pilot Call in 2014, the PRACE Council decided to make SHAPE a permanent service of the PRACE Research Infrastructure. A second call for applications was launched on 10 November 2014 and closed on 15 January 2015. A Selection Committee consisting of representatives of the PRACE Industrial Advisory Committee (IAC), the PRACE Board of Directors (BoD) and the PRACE IP Project reviewed all applications and awarded 11 innovative projects submitted by European SMEs access to PRACE Tier-0 systems.

"The decision of the PRACE Council to make SHAPE - SME HPC Adoption Programme in Europe - a permanent service was keenly welcomed by the PRACE Industrial Advisory Committee (IAC)", stated Jürgen Kohler, Chair of the IAC. "The PRACE support to SMEs in Europe is ramping up a wave of HPC innovation that will strengthen the competitiveness of Europe. Larger industrial companies will benefit from this via their subcontractors as well as via PRACE Open R&D Access."

The eleven awarded projects from six different countries are:

  • Algo'Tech Informatique, France, High performance to simulate electromagnetic disruption effects in embedded wiring
  • CybeleTech, France, Numerical simulations for plant breeding optimization
  • Design Methods, Italy, Coupled sail and appendage design method for multihull based on numerical optimization
  • Ergolines s.r.l., Italy, HPC-based Design of a Novel Electromagnetic Stirrer for Steel Segment Casting
  • Hydros Innovation, Switzerland, Automatic Optimal Hull Design by Means of VPP Applications on HPC Platforms
  • Ingenieurbüro Tobias Loose, Germany, Scaling out of LS_DYNA for welding simulations
  • Open Ocean, France, High Performance Processing Chain - HPPC
  • Principia, France, Porting and optimisation of Diodore CFD
  • Optimad Engineering, Italy, RAPHI - Optimisation of CFD solvers
  • Vortex Bladeless SL, Spain, Design of wind turbine without blades, called Vortex
  • WB-Sails Ltd Oy, Finland, CFD simulations of sails and sailboat performance

The SMEs leading these projects come from a diverse range of industrial domains: electromagnetics, aeronautics, agriculture, sailing and naval industry, renewable energies, welding and heat transfer, and steel casting optimisation.

Several projects will be using Open Source software or commercial HPC applications with the involvement of the software vendors. They will receive support and expertise via PRACE Preparatory Access Type C to port, develop, and optimise their codes through the PRACE-4IP project, which is funded by the European Commission's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme (2014-2020) under grant agreement 653838.
