  • PRACE Research Infrastructure
    – the top level of the European HPC ecosystem -

    PRACE, the Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe, created a persistent pan-European Research Infrastructure (RI) providing leading High Performance Computing (HPC) resources. PRACE enables world-class science and engineering for academia and industry. The PRACE RI is operated in collaboration with national HPC centres and governed by representatives of Member governments. Scientists and researchers from around the world can apply for access to PRACE resources through a rigorous peer review process. Industrial users can apply if they have their head offices or substantial R&D activity in Europe. The PRACE Access Committee, composed of leading European scientists and engineers, ranks the project proposals that will be awarded access to PRACE resources.
