New Services to Industry

In this activity PRACE will assess through different pilots with European industries the technical, legal and financial requirements needed for a possible deployment of pre-competitive R&D (delayed or no publication of the results) and production activities beyond the current Open R&D offer.

A first pilot at the beginning of the project will involve French (TGCC@GENCI) and German (HLRS@GCS) Tier-0 sites in a joint collaboration with Airbus toward the deployment of Cloud based HPC services for pre competitive R&D, involving also external research entities like DLR (Germany) and ONERA (France).

More pilots will be then launched in the field of an open call for proposals, addressing other industrial domains and interested PRACE partners.

The activities have been started with the PRACE-6IP and the preliminary discussion with industries are still marked as “work in progress”.
