CRESTA

CRESTA brings together four of Europe’s leading supercomputing centres, with one of the world’s major equipment vendors, two of Europe’s leading programming tools providers and six application and problem owners to explore how the exaflop challenge can be met.


DASH

DASH aims to ease the efficient programming of future supercomputing systems for data-intensive applications. These systems will be characterized by their extreme scale and a multi-level hierarchical organization.


EuroLab-4-HPC

EuroLab-4-HPC has the objective to establish a European Research Center of Excellence for high-performance computing (HPC) systems.


Eurolab4HPC2

Eurolab4HPC2 worked to promote the consolidation of European research excellence in exascale HPC systems.


ExaFLOW

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.


ExaSolvers

Today, exascale computers are characterized by billion-way parallelism. Computing on such extreme scale requires methods that scale perfectly and have optimal complexity. This project brings together several crucial aspects of extreme scale solving.

Mont-Blanc 2

The limiting factor in the development of an exascale high-performance computer systems is power consumption. The Mont-Blanc2 project focused on the task of developing a next-generation HPC system using embedded technologies to address this challenge.


Mont-Blanc 3

The Mont-Blanc project aims to design a new type of computer architecture capable of setting future HPC standards, built from energy-efficient solutions used in embedded and mobile devices.
