The aim of this call, HORIZON-EUROHPC-JU-2023-INCO-06-01: EU-India, launched today, is to:
Strengthen the European HPC ecosystem by enabling European stakeholders to enhance HPC applications and codes in academic and industrial cases of interest for Europe and India in the identified priority domains.
Improve sharing of information and expertise to solve common societal problems with the use of advanced computing.
Facilitate the exchange of researchers and engineers between India and the EU and their access to advanced India and EuroHPC JU supercomputing resources.
Improve international cooperation of EU-India HPC communities on advanced HPC application development, with a roadmap for future collaboration in targeted areas.
This action will specifically target the domains of common interest with India, as identified in the India-EU Intent for Cooperation on High Performance Computing, Weather Extremes and Climate Modelling, and Quantum Technologies, signed in November 2022, namely biomedical/drug discovery, climate change/natural hazards and quantum computing applications.
In line with the European Commission’s EU Digital Partnerships Strategy, aimed at advancing cooperation on digital issues with like-minded third countries, the EuroHPC JU holds a mandate to develop strategic research and innovation partnerships in HPC with nations such as Japan, Brazil, USA, and India. Such partnerships seek to advance HPC applications in domains of shared interest, including facilitating researcher access to EuroHPC JU resources and co-developing HPC applications.
This marks the second international cooperation initiative from the EuroHPC JU, following the international collaboration call with Japan launched in February 2023.
The call is open for submissions until 7 May 2024, 17:00 (CET).
More details and all relevant documents concerning the call are available on this dedicated webpage.
The call is funded by Horizon Europe, the EU’s Research and Innovation funding programme, with a total budget of up to EUR 5 million.
The EuroHPC JU is a legal and funding entity, created in 2018 and reviewed in 2021 by means of Council Regulation (EU) 2021/1173, with the mission to:
develop, deploy, extend and maintain in the EU a world-leading federated, secure and hyper-connected supercomputing, quantum computing, service and data infrastructure ecosystem;
support the development and uptake of demand-oriented and user-driven innovative and competitive supercomputing system based on a supply chain that will ensure components, technologies and knowledge limiting the risk of disruptions and the development of a wide range of applications optimised for these systems;
widen the use of that supercomputing infrastructure to a large number of public and private users and support the development of key HPC skills for European science and industry.
The Regulation (EU) 2021/1173 gives a mandate to the EuroHPC JU to develop strategic research and innovation partnerships in HPC with third countries like Japan, Brazil, USA and India that enables advancing the work on HPC applications in domains of common interest, including facilitating access for researchers to EuroHPC JU resources and co-development of HPC applications. The European HPC ecosystem will be further reinforced by enabling European stakeholders to develop novel algorithms, implement them in state-of-the-art codes and architectures, and test the applications and codes in academic and industrial cases to benefit both Europe and like-minded third countries.
