Fortissimo 2 - Open Call Webinar

Call for Proposals for HPC-Cloud Application Experiments
First call for new Fortissimo 2 application experiments. This call for proposals targets the augmentation of the application experiments currently being carried out within Fortissimo 2 and Fortissimo focusing on modelling and simulation of coupled phenomena and high-performance data analytics and in all cases targeting benefits for engineering and manufacturing SMEs and mid-caps.


Priority will be given to experiments driven by the requirements of first-time HPC users. Experiments should develop clear exploitation paths ensuring business impact and wider subsequent use of the services and technologies developed. They should also investigate service deployment in the Fortissimo marketplace.
