The 2015 edition of the MEP Awards will take place in Brussels on 18 March 2015. PRACE is proud sponsor of the Award for ICT.
Each year, The Parliament Magazine presents Awards to Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) who have made special efforts or achieved outstanding results in their portfolio(s). Each Award has a specific topic and is sponsored by an organisation (NGOs and international associations) that is active in that specific field or has a special interest in the topic.
For the 2015 MEP Awards (to be presented on 18 March 2015), PRACE will sponsor the new Award on ICT.
“This sponsorship comes at an auspicious time, as this year, new MEPs were elected and they will be looking for information and connections with organisations related to their work and interest: PRACE will be in an ideal position to establish itself as the research infrastructure for HPC in Europe in the minds of the newly elected MEPs,” said Sanzio Bassini, Chair of the PRACE Council. “Sponsorship of the ICT Award will allow our Pan-European Research Infrastructure to become more widely known, and consequently also the benefits of using HPC and numerical simulation to strengthen the competitiveness of research and industry,” he added”
