8 Oct 2018 Almere - Which countries are member of EuroHPC JU? What European centre is most successful in securing funding? Which projects did get funding from the first half a billion euro of Horizon 2020 budget invested in HPC in Europe?
ThePrimeur Magazineteam collected the data to provide answers to these questions for you and made them available on http://eurohpc.eu .
There are currently 25 countries member of EuroHPC. In addition, the European Union is also member. You can see the list on http://eurohpc.eu/members . For each country, we collected some more information: you can see the supercomputer centres with systems in the current TOP500 list of supercomputers. You can get info on the National Research Network (NREN) in the country that provides the backbone for HPC communication and a number of international e-Infrastructure and Research Infrastructure member organisations.
The 25 countries that signed for the EuroHPC Joint Undertaking, are not the same countries that committed to EuroHPC before, or the countries that signed the EuroHPC declaration. If you are interested in how EuroHPC commitment evolved over time, you can visit: http://eurohpc.eu/declaration .
When talking about EuroHPC JU, it is often cited that the European Union will invest 500 million euro in the coming years. But in the European Horizon 2020 the same amount has already been invested in HPC. We collected some 90 projects that together have received a budget of 500 million euro for you on http://eurohpc.eu/projects . This list is updated regularly and currently includes projects up to about the end of last year.
Which organisation is the most successful in partnering in European projects? We counted the number of HPC and HPC related projects in which an organisation is involved. Depending on whether you look at budget or at funding, the list might look different.
In total number of European HPC projects, the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC) is by far the largest wit 35 projects. This is more than the numbers 2 and 3 combined: EPCC at Edinburgh University and Forschungszentrum Juelich, each with 14 projects. The first company on the list is Atos Bull with 13 HPC projects in which the company participates.
