Dear ETP4HPC Members and Partners,
The summer months have been a very busy time for European HPC! The first EuroHPC calls for Research and Innovation projects were published on July 25. ETP4HPC, and specifically our representatives at the EuroHPC RIAG, were instrumental in defining the contents of those calls.
We are aware that the new EuroHPC processes raise many questions for all of you (and for our team as well). In particular, information on funding by the EuroHPC participating states is still lacking for many countries. We have voiced our concern to the EuroHPC JU on this critical gap.
To help you, we have compiled a short factsheet with pointers to existing information. If you are looking for partners for potential projects, don’t hesitate to use our Networking form or contact our Office for assistance. I wish all submitting teams a lot of a success in getting their proposals ready - and approved!
The 4th edition of our Strategic Research Agenda (SRA 4), which is currently being prepared by our experts with your collective contributions, will help shape EuroHPC calls beyond 2019. As we speak, our SRA 4 is taking its final shape. After publishing our blueprint back in April, the SRA 4 Working Groups have developed their chapters. We have addressed the intersections between the Working Groups and the Research Clusters – the cross-domain topics that require work in multiple Working Groups. Our core SRA team has been working hard to deliver the general parts of the SRA. The final workshop with an aim to review the document is taking place in early December.
I am looking forward to a busy September and Q4. Thank you for your support to date and if there is anything we can do to help you, please let us know.
