Eurolab4HPC is a two year Horizon 2020 funded project with the bold commitment to build the foundation for a European Research Center of Excellence in High-Performance Computing (HPC) Systems

High-Performance Computing (HPC) systems are of vital importance to the progress of science and technology. Europe has made significant progress in becoming a leader in HPC through industrial and application providers. In addition ETP4HPC is driving a European HPC vision towards exascale systems. Despite such gains excellence in HPC systems research is fragmented across Europe. Eurolab4HPC has the bold overall goal to join forces among excellent research institutions in HPC system across the system stack towards a long-term research agenda that drives innovation and education in HPC systems.

The main objectives of Eurolab4HPC are:

  • to join HPC system research groups around a long-term HPC research agenda by forming an HPC research roadmap and joining forces behind it
  • to define an HPC curriculum in HPC technologies and best-practice education/training methods to foster future European technology leaders
  • to accelerate commercial uptake of new HPC technologies
  • to build an HPC ecosystem with researchers and other stakeholders, e.g., HPC system providers and venture capital
  • to form a business model and organization for the Eurolab4HPC excellence centre in HPC systems.

Eurolab4HPC is coordinated by Chalmers University of Technology and involves thirteen prominent research organizations across nine countries with some of the best research teams in HPC in Europe.
