SHAPE Sixth Call for Applications now open


24 Sep 2017 Brussels - The Sixth Call for Applications to SHAPE - SME HPC Adoption Programme in Europe - invites applications from European SMEs with an interesting idea that would benefit from High Performance Computing for increasing their competitiveness. The Call opens on 2 October 2017 and closes on 1 December 2017.

SHAPE aims to work with the selected SMEs to introduce HPC-based tools and techniques into their business, operational, or production environment. The selected solutions should bring a potential tangible Return on Investment to the SMEs business.

The SHAPE process is as follows: the SME applies to the programme via the online or downloadable form - at this stage assistance is available from PRACE if required, but also the form includes guidelines on the expected content. The applications are then reviewed and rated, based principally on the strength of the business case and technical feasibility of the proposed work. The successful SMEs then can receive machine time on a PRACE system, and most importantly effort from a PRACE expert to work alongside the SME in evaluating and/or developing the HPC-based solution. In return the SME provides in-kind effort, publicity of their participation in SHAPE, and a public white paper on the work achieved in the project at its conclusion.

The Sixth Call for Applications to SHAPE opens on 2 October 2017 with a closing date of 1 December 2017. The Selection Committee will consist of representatives of the PRACE Industrial Advisory Committee (IAC), the PRACE Board of Directors (BoD) and the PRACE IP Project.

PRACE experts will work with the selected SMEs in order to develop their solutions, providing the participating SMEs with knowledge that will allow them to make an informed decision on the selected HPC solution. Consideration will be given to independent service providers to become involved with the implementation at a later stage.

Since its inception in 2013, SHAPE has enabled close to 40 SMEs located throughout Europe, working in many fields - including computational fluids dynamics, steel casting, medicine, genomics, environment and renewable energies, artificial intelligence, to demonstrate the concrete benefits of using HPC for improving their competitiveness. Via participation in SHAPE, jobs have been created, costs reduced, contracts won and new and innovative services have been offered.

To apply, you can visit http://www.prace-ri.eu/shape-application-form/ .
