  • The virtual laboratory

    Supercomputers can be used to simulate materials at vastly diverse scales, from the flow of air past an aeroplane’s wing down to the movement of electrons around individual atoms. Different length and time scale domains provide different levels of information, but little is currently known about how these levels of information are connected. Professor Peter […]

  • Featured Image EUDAT Call for Data Pilots

    EUDAT offers common data services, supporting multiple research communities as well as individuals, through a geographically distributed, resilient network of 35 European organisations. These shared services and storage resources are distributed across 15 European nations and data is stored alongside some of Europe’s most powerful supercomputers. Covering both access and deposit, from informal data sharing to long-term archiving, and addressing identification, discoverability and computability of both long-tail and big data, EUDAT’s services address the full lifecycle of research data.

  • Featured Image PRACE on the Road

    PRACE presented lively, entertaining and informative booths at the Sofia Science Festival in Bulgaria from 14 to 17 May and at the Project Information and Dissemination Event (PRIDE) in Croatia from 25 to 29 May 2015. These events reached out to young people and the general public informing them of the benefits of High Performance Computing and the activities of PRACE.


    The following set of Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), approved by the PRACE Council in 2014, allow for a deeper analysis and evaluation of PRACE’s achievements and successes. These KPI cover the first half of the PRACE initial period, until the 5th PRACE Call for Proposals for Project Access.
