Teratec is a European industrial initiative federating industrial users, technology providers and research centres to harness HPC technologies and enlarge their usage. Teratec objective is to actively promote modeling and simulation in all industrial sectors in order to increase European economic competitiveness and innovation capacity. At the heart of digital innovation - Numerical Simulation, vector of Innovation and Competitiveness
Harnessing technologyTeratec actively participates in initiatives to improve industrial proficiency in the numerical simulation and HPC sector, which is crucial to keeping Europe competitive and innovating. One such initiative is ETP4HPC, the European platform to accelerate the development of technologies at every step of the HPC chain, for all industry sectors.Industrial researchTeratec helps set up and promote French and European research projects mixing industrial companies, technology suppliers, and major research centers via R&D programs in France (competitiveness clusters including Systematic Paris-Région, and the French National Research Agency) and Europe (PCRD, ITEA2).Dissemination across industries and servicesTeratec helps companies, especially small and medium-sized businesses, gain access to the high-performance computing technologies they need to develop new products and services. A major initiative is underway for widely accessible Cloud simulation services.Teratec Forum is the annual leading industrial HPC event in Europe, a meeting with international experts who discuss the technological and economic issues around high performance computing and numerical simulation.
Support for SMEsTeratec supports technological SME and startup companies in their actions to value their expertise and their offers. It also facilitates their access to industry leading end-users and helps them set up and finance their R&D projects.Teratec and the Essonne Chamber of Commerce and Industry provide them offices and support services on the Teratec Campus, an area dedicated to simulation and HPC.Education and trainingTeratec has joined forces with universities and major engineering schools to design programs in initial and vocational training that cover the entire spectrum of high performance simulation and modeling. These initiatives will be expanded and reinforced to form a European training institute.International cooperationsTeratec develops international cooperations in many fields: European research programs, exchange programs with major industrialized countries and some emerging countries that have decided to rapidly develop their HPC capacities, and also international partnerships.
