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.  

EuroLab-4-HPC 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.

EuroLab-4-HPC 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. The main objectives 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 EuroLab-4-HPC excellence centre in HPC systems.

EuroLab-4-HPC 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.
