Close to 800 million funding allocated to 119 HPC related research projects in European H2020 programme


19 Aug 2019 Almere - We have updated our list with projects under the current European Horizon 2020 research programme. 790 million euro of budget has been allocated in this five year programme. We have found 119 HPC related projects. There is still some budget that has not yet been allocated. So the final figure, next year will be over 800 million euro for over 120 projects. Our list does not yet include EuroHPC funded projects. The first EuroHPC calls are just open, so no EuroHPC funded research project has been approved yet.

In the HPC Knowledge Base, we also list the details of each project, such as funding and budget, topic, and and partners. For each partner organisation you can find further information.

The organisation that participates by far in most European HPC related H2020 projects is BSC in Barcelona, with 51 projects. Forschungszentrum Jülich is second with participation in 23 projects, followed by EPCC in Edinburgh with 21 projects. Atos (Bull) participates in 21 projects too. There are 45 organisations with participation in 5 projects or more.

The major new project listed is the SGA1 (Specific Grant Agreement 1) of the European Processor Initiative (EPI). The project will finish in November of 2021. The next round of financing of EPI will come from the EuroHPC budget. If that is also a two-year project, the first usable chips could be ready for inclusion in HPC systems in 2023.

PRACE also has received a new implementation project, the 6th implementation project. It started in May for 2,5 years with a budget of 29 million euro of which 24 million comes from Horizon 2020.

Several large scale HPC and Big Data test beds and Research Infrastructures with an HPC component have also started recently or are about to start.
