Who are we?

We are an industry-led think-tank guiding the development of the European advanced computing ecosystem

ETP4HPC – the European Technology Platform (ETP) for High-Performance Computing (HPC) - is a private, industry-led and non-profit association. Our main objective is to guide the development of the European advanced computing ecosystem. Our main instrument is the elaboration, maintenance and dissemination of the European advanced computing technology roadmap, i.e. the ETP4HPC Strategic Research Agenda (SRA), which delineates the technological path for all stakeholders of the advanced computing value chain and related technologies. This SRA is used by the EuroHPC Joint Undertaking (JU) to define the contents of their Technology Work Programmes.

We are a private member of the EuroHPC JU and have several representatives in their Research and Innovation Advisory Group (RIAG).

Our members have diverse profiles, from advanced computing technology players active in Europe to advanced computing users: vendors - both large industrial companies and small SMEs, academic research organisations and industrial users.

ETP4HPC is open to new members sharing its vision and objectives.


A bit of history

The importance of HPC for Europe was recognised by the EC in its Communication: 'High Performance Computing: Europe's place in a Global Race' (Feb 2012). This key document also stipulates the creation of a European Technology Platform for High-Performance in order to align the efforts of the European HPC technology providers and facilitate the emergence of a globally competitive HPC industry in Europe.

The ETP4HPC association was formed in 2012.
