At the 37th PRACE Council Meeting on 17 June 2020 – which was held remotely to account for the travel restrictions and physical distancing rules due to the COVID-19 pandemic – the PRACE Members elected a new Chair and Vice-Chair. The new incumbents will fulfil their mandates for two years.
The PRACE 10th SHAPE Call for Applications received five innovative proposals from SMEs across five different countries. For the first time projects from Slovenia and Turkey are included in the SHAPE Call results. All five submitted proposals were awarded for the PRACE SHAPE pan-European programme. This programme promotes High-Performance Computing (HPC) adoption by SMEs (small and medium-sized enterprises) and it’s free of charge.
The 20th Call for Proposals for PRACE Project Access received 59 eligible proposals, of which 45 were awarded a total of 2.11 billion core hours. This brings the total number of Project Access projects awarded to 779 since 2010. Taking into account the five multi-year projects from the 16th and 18th Calls that were renewed and will enter their third and second years respectively, and the 13.8 million core hours reserved for Centres of Excellence, the total amount of computing time awarded by PRACE to date totals nearly 25 billion core hours.
