HPC Public Private Partnership Info Day – April 9, 2014 – Paris
HPC Public Private Partnership Info Day – April 9, 2014 – Paris


This Info Day was the first public event within the charter of the PPP on HPC. On December 17th, 2013, ETP4HPC, the European Technology Platform (ETP) in the area of High-Performance Computing (HPC) and the European Commission (EC) established a contractual Public-Private Partnership (PPP) for supporting the development of the European HPC eco-system and facilitate the achievement of research and investment objectives in the area of HPC technology provision, application development and sustainable HPC infrastructure. The HPC PPP is one of the eight contractual PPP’s launched last December in the frame of the Horizon 2020 Programme for Research and Innovation (2014-2020).

The programme of this Infoday included the PPP’s objectives, the European HPC strategy, PRACE contribution to the ecosystem, and the Calls for Proposals related to HPC in the Work Programme 2014-2015 of the Excellent Science pillar of Horizon 2020 (Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) and e-infrastructures).

The event gathered 140 participants from 20 countries at Institut de Physique du Globe de Paris. It offered an exceptional opportunity for many direct questions and exchanges with DG-CONNECT – as well as networking between participants.
