The EuroHPC JU seeks to procure a pre-exascale high performance computer which will be specifically tailored to strengthen European medical research. The machine will also support traditional HPC applications, such as climate research, engineering, material science and earth sciences. The system, called MareNostrum5, will be hosted by the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC) and will be capable of executing at least 205 Petaflops, or at least 205 million billion calculations per second.
The estimated total value for the call is EUR 151 410 000. The EuroHPC JU will fund 50% of the total cost of the new machine and the other 50% will be funded by a consortium made of three EuroHPC participating countries: Spain, Portugal, and Turkey.
Following the publication of a corrigendum, the closing date of the call has been extended to 21 Februray 2022, 16:00 CET.
