ESCAPE stands for Energy-efficient Scalable Algorithms for Weather Prediction at Exascale. The project will develop world-class, extreme-scale computing capabilities for European operational numerical weather prediction and future climate models. The biggest challenge for state-of-the art NWP arises from the need to simulate complex physical phenomena within tight production schedules.



PRIMAVERA stands for "Process-based climate simulation: Advances in high-resolution modelling and European climate risk assessment". It is a European Union Horizon 2020 project which aims to develop a new generation of advanced and well-evaluated high-resolution global climate models, capable of simulating and predicting regional climate with unprecedented fidelity, for the benefit of governments, business and society in general.


Centre of Excellence POP

The Performance Optimisation and Productivity (POP) Centre of Excellence in Computing Applications provides performance optimisation and productivity services for academic and industrial code(s) in all domains.


Centre of Excellence EoCoE

The Energy oriented Centre of Excellence in computing applications (EoCoE: read as "Echo") uses the tremendous potential offered by the ever-growing computing infrastructure to foster and accelerate the European transition to a reliable and low carbon energy supply using HPC.

Centre of Excellence CoeGSS

The CoeGSS project aims at empowering the community of analysts addressing global challenges through high-performance computing and data analysis. In particular, the project will develop an HPC-based framework to generate synthetic information systems for tackling global challenges.


IS-ENES2 is the second phase project of the distributed e-infrastructure of models, model data and metadata of the European Network for Earth System Modelling (ENES). It gathers together the European modelling community working on understanding and predicting climate variability and change. IS-ENES2 combines expertise in climate modelling, computational science, data management and climate impacts.


ETP4HPC is the European Technology Platform (ETP) in the area of High-Performance Computing (HPC). It is an industry-led think-tank comprising of European HPC technology stakeholders: technology vendors, research centres and end-users. The main objective of ETP4HPC is to define research priorities and action plans in the area of HPC technology provision (i.e. the provision of supercomputing systems). ETP4HPC issues and maintains a Strategic Research Agenda as a mechanism to help the European Commission define the contents of the HPC Technology Work Programmes.


The European Extreme Data & Computing Initiative (EXDCI) objective is to support the development and implementation of a common strategy for the European HPC Ecosystem. The two most significant HPC bodies in Europe, PRACE and ETP4HPC, join their expertise in this 30-month project. EXDCI aims to support the road-mapping, strategy-making and performance-monitoring activities of the ecosystem.
