SHAPE –  SME HPC Adoption Programme in Europe

The 12th Call for Applications to SHAPE (SME HPC Adoption Programme in Europe) invites applications from European SMEs with an interesting idea that would benefit from HPC for increasing their competitiveness (closing date of Tuesday 1 December 2020.).
SHAPE aims to work with 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 SME’s business.

PRACE versus COVID-19

In line with its mission, PRACE (Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe), runs a Fast Track Call for Proposals for projects that will use supercomputers to contribute to the fight against COVID-19. A Scientific Committee established by PRACE leads the review process and evaluates proposals within one week. Selected projects are given access to Europe’s most powerful supercomputers. Those projects can also receive data storage and sharing solutions in line with the open data policy applicable to the Call: https://prace-ri.eu/hpc-access/hpcvsvirus/

PRACE operates 14 PRACE Training Centres (PTCs) in order to provide training in HPC and scientific computing.
PTCs carry out and coordinate training and education activities that enable both European academic researchers and European industry to utilise the computational infrastructure available through PRACE and provide top-class education and training opportunities for computational scientists in Europe.
You can explore our materials via the PRACE Training Portal.
