HPC-Europa3 – Transnational Access
Funding for research visits to build international networks in HPC: Network, Compute, Learn, Travel
The project HPC-Europa project is based on a program of visits, in the form of traditional transnational access, with researchers visiting HPC centres and/or scientific hosts who mentor them scientifically and technically for the best exploitation of the HPC resources in their research. The visitors are financially supported for travel, accommodation and subsistence, and provided with an amount of computing time suitable for the approved project (PLEASE NOTE: the provided funding is not a salary and not meant to cover ALL costs but it is meant to be an help to support the visiting period).
The calls for applications are issued 4 times per year and published online on the HPC-Europa3 website. The next closing date will be on 09th Sept 2021 (23:59 CEST). The programme will end in April 2022 so do not miss the last calls!
It is recommended that researchers apply between 2 and 4 months before the start of their visit. Successful applicants will visit for between 3 and 13 weeks.
A web-based interface has been set-up to submit applications. Detailed guidelines and on-line FAQs are provided to assist the applicants with the process.
If you wish to apply for a visit grant and if you intend to spend a research period in one of the 9 countries of the HPC centres part of the project, please read the guidelines and then fill in the online form. If you have any question concerning the project or the application procedure feel free to contact the project coordinators.
