EuroHPC Benchmark and Development Access

The purpose of these calls is to support researchers and HPC application developers by giving them the opportunity to develop, test and optimise their applications on the upcoming/available EuroHPC Pre-exascale and/or Petascale system prior to applying for an Extreme Scale and/or Regular project.

EuroHPC Benchmark and Development Access

The Call for Proposals for EuroHPC JU Benchmark and Development Access Modes are continuously open calls, with a maximum time-to-resources-access (start-date) of two weeks after the date of submission.

The purpose of these calls is to support researchers and HPC application developers by giving them the opportunity to develop, test and optimise their applications on the upcoming/available EuroHPC Pre-exascale and/or Petascale system prior to applying for an Extreme Scale and/or Regular project. Proposals can be submitted at any time (continuously open). The review takes place after a fixed date every month (referred as cut-off date). The goals of each of the two access modes are:

  • Benchmark calls are designed for code scalability tests, the outcome of which is to be included in the proposal in a future EuroHPC Extreme Scale and Regular call. Users receive a limited number of node hours; the maximum allocation period is three (3) months.
  • Development calls are designed for projects focusing on code and algorithm development and optimisation. This can be in the context of research projects from academia or industry, or as part of large public or private funded initiatives as for instance Centres of Excellence or Competence Centres. Users will typically be allocated a small number of node hours; the allocation period is one (1) year and is renewable up to 2 times.

Various systems will be available in each cut-off for the different Benchmark & Development Access modes. The exact amount of available node hours is subject to the EuroHPC systems participating in a given call and will be announced prior to the cut-off dates. For the first cut-off period the VEGA system resources (Slovenia) are available.
