First FF4EuroHPC call open for SMEs that want to benefit from the use of advanced HPC services


The key concept behind the FF4EuroHPC project is to demonstrate to European SMEs ways to optimize their performance with the use of advanced HPC (High Performance Computing) services (e.g., modelling & simulation, data analytics, machine-learning
and AI, and possibly combinations thereof) and thereby take advantage of these innovative ICT solutions for business benefit.

Two open calls will  aim to create two series of application experiments within diverse industry sectors. The open calls will target experiments of the highest quality, involving innovative, agile SMEs with work plans built around innovation objectives, arising from the use of advanced HPC services. Experiments are the heart of the project and will be the main outputs of FF4EuroHPC, which is a successor of the Fortissimo and Fortissimo2 projects.

Proposals are sought that address business challenges from European SMEs covering varied application domains, preference being given to engineering and manufacturing, or sectors able to demonstrate fast economic growth or particular economic impact for Europe. Priority will be given to consortia centred on SMEs that are new to the use of advanced HPC services.

The first Call was opened on 2 November 2020 and will close on 27 January 2021.
