PRACE support to mitigate impact of COVID-19 pandemic: Redirected Projects


On this page you will find the projects that applied to the PRACE Fast Track Call for Proposals for projects requesting computing resources to contribute to the mitigation of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, but were deemed better suited to a different access mechanism after review.

The Gordon Bell Special Prize for High Performance Computing-Based COVID-19 Research is accepting nominations for 2020 and 2021 awards to to recognize outstanding research achievement towards the understanding of the COVID-19 pandemic through the use of high-performance computing (HPC).
