  • The project aims to research possibilities of efficient data management with regard to high amounts of scientific data emerging from the programs of engineering science at the University of Stuttgart.
  • The essence of High Performance Computing (HPC) lies in sharing the large-scale hardware resources among the software applications using them. Efficient application allocation on the available compute resources is a key aspect of any HPC infrastructure functionality.
  • EuroLab-4-HPC has the objective to establish a European Research Center of Excellence for High Performance Computing (HPC) systems.
  • The main goal of ExaFLOW is to address key algorithmic challenges in CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) to enable simulation at exascale, guided by a number of use cases of industrial relevance, and to provide open-source pilot implementations.
  • Today, exascale computers are characterized by billion-way parallelism. Computing on such extreme scale needs methods, which scale perfectly and have optimal complexity. This project proposal brings together several crucial aspects of extreme scale solving.
  • The EXCESS scientific and technological concept in addressing energy efficiency is defined by novel execution models between common High Performance Computing infrastructures and Embedded Systems.
  • EXPERTISE is a European Training Network (ETN) that will contribute to train the next generation of mechanical and computer science engineers. The ultimate research objective of EXPERTISE is to develop advanced tools for the dynamics analysis of large-scale models of turbine components to pave the way towards the virtual testing of the entire machine.
  • Factories of the Future Resources, Technology, Infrastructure and Services for Simulation and Modeling. Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) are now discovering the potentials of simulations on supercomputers to enhance their core business and improve their competitiveness. Thus the needs and requirements for HPC centres start to change.
