The European Technology Platform for High-Performance Computing (ETP4HPC) is an industry-led group of public and private HPC stakeholders. Its main mission is to give advice to the European Commission concerning research priorities in the area of HPC in the form of a regularly updated Strategic Research Agenda (SRA). The presentation will provide an update on the ETP's activities and in particular on the Extreme Scale Demonstrators (EsD), which have been introduced in the latest SRA. Their concept, to integrate results from recent European R&I actions into usable HPC systems, has recently been adopted by the EC.
