European Commission Looks to Invest a Billion Euros in HPC
13 January, 2018, 13:27
The European Commission on Thursday announced a plan to invest 1 billion euros (1.19 billion US dollars) with European Union (EU) member states to build a world-class European supercomputers infrastructure. The responsible on Economy and Digital Society, Mariya Gabriel, said for her part that in 2012 Europe had four of the 10 main supercomputers of the world. "We can not risk being dependent on third countries for these computers", she said.
"To achieve the goal of HPC leadership-meaning at minimum parity in HPC capabilities with the best in the world-Europe needs to acquire at least one exascale supercomputer in the same timeframe as the U.S., Japan and China".
Two of the supercomputers will be "world-class pre-exascale supercomputing machines", capable of at least a hundred million billion calculations per second.
The resulting systems will be shared by EuroHPC states, which now consist of France, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Belgium, Slovenia, Bulgaria, Switzerland, Greece and Croatia.
Formally, the United Kingdom is not part of the project, and some are fearing the country might be missing out on a great opportunity.

In a statement laying out its plans, the Commission said initial work would concentrate on developing machines that match the computational capacities of the world's most powerful machines. They can help us to develop personalised medicine, save energy and fight against climate change more efficiently.
