ACROSS project is part of the European-funded projects that mostly influence the HPC world and that are reported in the ETP4HPC (European Technology Platform (ETP) for High-Performance Computing (HPC)) Handbook 2021. ACROSS has been included in the section “Applications in the HPC Continuum” of the Handbook.
Every Year ETP4HPC publishes a Handbook describing different European projects related to the HPC field, in the 2021 edition of the Handbook are included projects funded by 25 different calls. The projects are grouped by scope. However, there are also provided in European Exascale Projects an overview of the different calls, indicating where to find the corresponding projects in the Handbook.
This Handbook will help readers to navigate the complex European HPC landscape and give them ideas and contacts for many future innovative projects that will nourish and strengthen the European HPC ecosystem and technological autonomy and independence. As such, the ACROSS consortium is proud of being part of the 2021 edition, having the chance to improve the awareness of the technological challenges addressed by our project along with the related innovative solutions.
ETP4HPC is a private, industry-led, and non-profit association created in 2012. Their principal mission is to promote European HPC research and innovation in order to maximize the economic and societal benefit of HPC for European science, industry, and citizens. Their main task is to propose research priorities and programme contents in the area of HPC technology and usage, by issuing a Strategic Research Agenda (SRA). This SRA is used by the EuroHPC Joint Undertaking (JU) to define the contents of the HPC Technology Work Programmes.
ETP4HPC is a private member of the EuroHPC JU that provides mechanisms and resources to develop globally competitive European HPC systems, technology, and application expertise, and has several representatives in their Research and Innovation Advisory Group (RIAG).
Their members have different profiles, from HPC technology players active in Europe to HPC users: vendors – both large industrial companies and small SMEs, academic HPC research organizations, and industrial HPC users.
