Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe - Third Implementation Phase
In general, the mission of PRACE is to enable high impact scientific discovery and engineering research and development across all disciplines to enhance European competitiveness for the benefit of society.
PRACE seeks to realize this mission through world class computing and data management resources and services through a peer review process. With the broad participation of European governments and associated countries through representative organizations, a diversity of resources can be provided by PRACE, including expertise throughout Europe in effective use of the resources. To aid users and potential users as well as preparing the next generation scientists and engineers PRACE has an extensive pan-European education and training effort. PRACE encourages collaboration with industry and industrial use and conducts annual Industrial Seminars at locations throughout Europe. PRACE also seeks to strengthen the European HPC industry through various initiatives and has a strong interest in improving energy efficiency of computing systems and reducing their environmental impact.
Twenty six partners collaborate in the Third Implementation PRACE Phase (PRACE-3IP) project: PRACE aisbl and its 24 Members under the co-ordination of FZJ. PRACE-3IP complements and extends the work undertaken in PRACE-1IP and PRACE-2IP , e.g. to deliver a broader set of HPC services suitable for use by industry.
The project is funded by the European Union (EU) under grant agreement number INFSO-RI-312763.
The grant period is July 2012 until June 2014.
