R&I project eFlows4HPC entered implementation phase
Funded by the European High Performance Computing Joint Undertaking, the eFlows4HPC project will enable dynamic and intelligent workflows in the EuroHPC ecosystem and support the development of European exascale systems.
The project eFlows4HPC has started its activities with a kick-off meeting. Funded by the European High-Performance Computing Joint Undertaking (EuroHPC JU) and the Participating States, the eFlows4HPC project will create a European workflow platform for the design of complex applications that integrate HPC processes, data analytics, and artificial intelligence.
The project is one of the 5 selected proposals addressing the call EuroHPC-02-2019, ‘HPC and data centric environments and application platforms’. These projects are focusing on the development of energy-efficient HPC software and are expected to demonstrate significant use cases and pilot systems. The projects contribute to a globally competitive European ecosystem in the field of supercomputing.
Started on 1st January 2021, the project eFlows4HPC will run for a 3-year period with a total budget of €7.6 million. Funding of more than €3,5 million is provided by Horizon 2020, the Research and Innovation funding programme of the EU, supplemented by grants from national funding authorities and in-kind contributions of the partners. The consortium of eFlows4HPC is composed of 15 actors from 7 European countries and it is coordinated by the Barcelona Supercomputing Centre.
More information on the projects are available in the section Actions of our website.
About EuroHPC JU
The EuroHPC JU was established by Council Regulation (EU) 2018/1488 in 2018. 32 European countries are currently taking part in the initiative and pooling their resources with the EU and private partners to enable the EU to become a world leader in supercomputing.
The mission of the EuroHPC JU is to develop, deploy, extend and maintain an integrated world-class supercomputing and data infrastructure in the EU and to develop and support a highly competitive and innovative HPC ecosystem.
The EuroHPC JU aims at equipping the EU in 2021 with an infrastructure of petascale and precursor to exascale supercomputers and developing the necessary technologies and applications for reaching full exascale capabilities around 2022 / 2023.
