Time: 10:00 to 16:00

This event will explain how SMEs can exploit new technologies by taking advantage of the assistance available through the HPC-Europa programme.


Advanced simulation and data analysis techniques are increasingly important in maintaining a competitive edge, yet SMEs often lack the skills or hardware required to take advantage of them. The HPC-Europa programme supports SMEs in overcoming this resources gap.


HPC-Europa facilitates the uptake of high performance computing (HPC) by SMEs through:

      o Funding visits to SMEs by HPC and software experts from industry and academia

      o Providing HPC facilities and expert support for the duration of the visit and up to 4 months beyond


The programme funds travel, accommodation and a daily allowance for visitors from anywhere in Europe. Visits may be from 3 to 13 weeks in duration and are hosted by the SME.


HPC-Europa can also support reciprocal visits, paying for SME staff to visit experts in Europe.


Lunch is provided, and all are welcome.
