SHAPE 10th Call

On this page you will find details of the projects awarded under the SHAPE 10th Call.

Project Title: RF Solver on multi GPUs



This Engineering SME is active in the Computer-Aided Engineering (CAE) market, designing and developing Multiphysics software. This has applications in Sensors and actuators, including MEMS (Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems) and Microsystems, Optomechanical systems including MOEMS (Micro-Opto-Electro-Mechanical Systems) and Multidisciplinary systems involving interaction between a fluid medium and other structures.

Working together with IDRIS based in France, the SME wants to develop a multi-GPU version of their code based on a single-GPU version that they already have. The plan is then to analyse the performance of the new code. Developments carried out during this project should improve performance and reduce memory usage which should then lead to faster, more accurate results thus improving the services provided to customers.

Project Title: High resolution calculation for the optimization of commercial LEDs spectra in health applications

SME: Enlighting Technologies SL, Spain


This SME is a spin-off company from the University of Barcelona developing simulation software for the creation of Printed Circuit Boards (PCBs) and light scenarios (spectra) using different LEDs available in the market. The project here focuses on the installation of bio adapted luminaires at a hospital facility, where the SME plans to simulate various lighting scenarios. Their codes presently run on a desktop machine and they wish to scale up to running on MareNostrum 4 at BSC.

Project Title: Optimisation of national vegetation mapping workflows

SME: Global Surface Intelligence, UK


Global Surface Intelligence (GSI) is an earth observation company that uses satellite data to assess natural resources using machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence. GSI already uses Cirrus, a Tier-2 system at EPCC, UK and would primarily like to develop their workflow to enable ease of use as well as including some additional parallelism which EPCC will work on together with the SME.

Project Title: HPC logistics

SME: SPARK inovacije, d.o.o., Slovenia

SPARK is a start-up company working on logistics optimisation, in particular vehicle route optimisation for logistics companies with a focus on reducing fuel usage and congestion. The company uses multi-objective algorithms and together with a team at the University of Ljubljana will explore the use of HPC within their business.

Project Title: Power Forecasting for Renewable Energy Sources

SME: Tarentum, Turkey

Tarentum delivers AI powered products for businesses across multiple industries. The Wind Power Forecasting product provides production forecasts for Energy Companies. In this project with PRACE, Tarentum combines Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP) models with Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning Algorithms to improve prediction accuracy and optimize NWP simulations. The team at UHEM in Turkey will work with Tarentum to develop their HPC plans.
