Supercomputing is starting to play a key role in different sectors and industries enabling industrial sectors to become more innovative, productive and shift business to a higher level.
Which benefits will you gain as an SME or mid-cap when using HPC in business?
The possibilities resulting from HPC use start with a more precise design of complex work pieces, continue with speeding-up the time-to-market, and conclude with the cost-saving of materials and time savings which could be spent for further R&D. HPC is becoming more accessible than ever before – scientists, researchers and engineers can run HPC workloads on on-premise infrastructure or can use resources from public cloud service providers.
FF4EuroHPC is a European initiative that helps facilitate access to all high-performance computing-related technologies for SMEs and thus increases the innovation potential of European industry. Whether it is running high-resolution simulations, doing large-scale data analyses, or incorporating AI applications into SMEs´ workflows, FF4EuroHPC connects business with cutting-edge technologies.
We expect to open the second Open Call in June 2021 and close it by End of September. Detailed information for the second call will be published on REGISTRATION. Proposals will address business challenges from European SMEs from varied application domains.
Call for proposals targets the highest quality experiments involving innovative, agile SMEs and with work plans built around innovation targets arising from the use of advanced HPC services. Proposals are sought that address business challenges from European SMEs from varied application domains, but preference being given to engineering and manufacturing, or sectors able to demonstrate fast economic growth or particular economic impact for Europe.
- Expected duration of experiments: maximum 15 months with expected commencement 1st June 2021
- Maximum funding request per proposal: EUR 200,000 (covering all participants)
In the Fortissimo and Fortissimo 2 projects (which ran from 2013 to 2018), 92 SMEs from different European countries and sectors participated in application experiments that demonstrated the benefits of HPC cloud-based advanced modelling, simulation and data analytics. Have a look at success stories and get inspired on REGISTRATION.
