MaX / MaX-II

European Centre of Excellence for Materials design at the Exascale

MaX supports developers and end users of advanced applications in the field of materials, and works at the frontiers of the current and future High Performance Computing (HPC) and High Throughput Computing (HTC) technologies.

The project enables the best use and evolution of such technologies for materials research and innovation. It is creating an ecosystem of capabilities, applications, data workflows and analysis, and user-oriented services to sustain this effort.

At the same time, the project is enabling 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.
