The European commission has recently established 8 centres of excellence in computing applications within the Horizon 2020 program.  The primary objective of all the newly formed centres of excellence is to help strengthen Europe’s leadership in HPC applications by tackling various challenges in important areas like renewable energy, materials modeling and design, molecular and atomic modeling, climate change, Global Systems Science, bio-molecular research, and tools to improve HPC applications performance.

EoCoE (Energy Oriented Center of Excellence) assists the energy transition via targeted support to four carbon-free energy pillars: Meteorology, Materials, Water and Fusion, each with a heavy reliance on numerical modeling. These four pillars are anchored within a strong transversal multidisciplinary basis providing high-end expertise in applied mathematics and High Performance Computing (HPC). EoCoE, led by Maison de la Simulation, is structured around a Franco-German hub (Maison de la Simulation - Jülich Research Centre) coordinating a pan-European network, gathering a total of 8 countries and 20 teams all strongly engaged in both the HPC and energy fields.
