5th PRACE Implementation Phase Project

PRACE-5IP is the fifth in a series of PRACE implementation phase projects. It is funded as part of the H2020 framework programme and started on 1 January 2017. Like its predecessors, PRACE-5IP is coordinated by Forschungszentrum Jülich. It has a budget of nearly € 15.9 million, a duration of 28 months and 26 partners. Over 250 researchers from 49 organizations (including 3rd parties) in 25 countries will assist the PRACE Research Infrastructure and support the PRACE users. The PRACE-5IP kick-off meeting took place at the Greek Research and Technology Network S.A., Athens, from 1-2 February 2017 with over 130 participants.

The project is designed to build on and seamlessly continue the successes of the Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe (PRACE) and start new innovative and collaborative activities. These include: preparing strategies and best practices towards Exascale computing; coordinating and enhancing the operation of the multi-tier HPC systems and services; continuing advanced training and expanding the network of PRACE Training Centres; promoting take-up by industry and new communities, and special offers for SMEs; collaborating with the ETP4HPC, CoEs and other European and international organizations on future architectures, training, application support and policies; and supporting users in exploiting massively parallel systems and novel architectures. The project will continue to organize well-known events such as PRACEdays, Summer of HPC or the International HPC Summer School in order to promote and support innovative scientific approaches in modelling, simulation and data analysis.
