Pawsey and PRACE to jointly promote the use of supercomputing

Serge Bogaerts & Ugo Varetto signing the PRACE-Pawsey Mou at EHPCSW2018 in Ljubljana, Slovenia.4 Jun 2018 Ljubljana - The Pawsey Supercomputing Centre and the Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe (PRACE) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to promote the use of supercomputers to the progress of scientific and technological outcomes, and to stimulate the industry sector both in Australia and Europe.

PRACE is an international non-profit association, with 25 member countries. Its representative organisations create a pan-European supercomputing infrastructure, providing access to computing and data management resources and services for large-scale scientific and engineering applications at the highest performance level for scientists and researchers from academia and industry in Europe.

PRACE and Pawsey share the complexity and international nature of the science areas that each organisation supports, the need to provide services to researchers who are spread across different time zones and the requirement of on-demand access to compute power for a scientific instrument.

The collaboration seeks to promote research and development in the field of Computational Science and Engineering, targeting exchange of information in three areas; training, industrial usage of High-Performance Computing (HPC), and the link between HPC and scientific instruments. The partnership also commits to identify opportunities to improve the operational efficiency of each of the parties, and to provide enhanced support for globally distributed research teams.

The signing ceremony took place during the European HPC Summit Week 2018 in Ljubljana; signed by Ugo Varetto, Pawsey's Acting Executive Director, and Serge Bogaerts, PRACE Managing Director.

Ugo Varetto said the agreement is another step toward creating alliances making Pawsey a world-leading, iternationally recognised supercomputing facility.
