Materials design at the eXascale - a European centre of excellence

MaX is a user-focused, problem-oriented European Centre of Excellence. It works at the frontiers of the current and future High Performance Computing (HPC) technologies, to enable the best use and evolution of HPC for materials research and innovation.
MaX is creating an ecosystem of capabilities, ambitious applications, data workflows and analysis, and user-oriented services. At the same time, MaX enables the exascale transition in the materials domain, by developing advanced programming models, novel algorithms, domain-specific libraries, in-memory data management, software/hardware co-design and technology-transfer actions.
