HPC-Europa is an EC-funded programme which allows European-based computaional scientists to carry out short "transnational access" research visits to collaborate with a research department working in a similar field.
The project offers access to some of the largest HPC systems in Europe, including:
- Cray XE6 "Hermit" (HLRS, Germany)
- Cray XE6 "Hector" (EPCC, UK)
- SGI Altix ICE "Jade" (GENCI-CINES, France)
- IBM BladeCenter cluster "MareNostrum" (BSC, Spain)
Applicants can be working in any discipline, but MUST require the use of High Performance Computing facilities (for large-scale computer modelling, etc).
Visitors work closely with a "host" research group working in a similar field of research - over 200 research groups in 7 countries are currently associated with the programme as "host" research groups (see webpage for more details).
Visits can last between 3 weeks and 3 months.
HPC-Europa pays travel and living costs and provides accommodation.
Following EC guidelines, applications are particularly encouraged from new EU member countries and those who do not have access to similar computing facilities at their home institute.
The programme is open to researchers of all levels, from postgraduate students to the most senior professors.
The next closing date for applications is WEDNESDAY 15th FEBRUARY 2012.
Closing dates are held approximately every 3 months, and the HPC-Europa programme continues until December 2012.
