Description

The overall objective of this call is to allow hosting entities of supercomputers that the EuroHPC Joint Undertaking owns or co-owns to apply for the system to be upgraded. The upgrade will lead to an extension of the supercomputer’s lifetime, increase its operational performance and provide new functionalities to address the growing evolution of user needs.

A hosting entity shall be eligible to respond to this call for expressions of interest at the earliest one year after the selection date of the hosting entity of the EuroHPC supercomputer, and no later than three years after this date. A EuroHPC supercomputer may be upgraded only once. The applicant hosting entity may represent one EuroHPC JU participating state that is also an EU Member State or the original hosting consortium of EuroHPC JU participating states that have agreed to contribute to the acquisition and operation of the EuroHPC supercomputer. The EuroHPC JU shall own or co-own the upgraded features of the supercomputer under the same conditions of ownership of the original EuroHPC supercomputer.

Selected hosting entities will receive financial contributions to upgrade existing EuroHPC supercomputers. The upgrades will be co-funded by the EuroHPC JU budget coming from the Digital Europe Programme and by contributions from relevant participating states. The JU will co-fund up to 35% of the total cost of the upgrade with a maximum EU budget for this call of EUR 33 million. EuroHPC JU participating states will be required to fund the remaining total costs of the upgrade. The total cost of the upgrade shall not exceed 30 % of the total acquisition cost of the original EuroHPC supercomputer.
