PRACE selects SMEs for HPC pilot

The PRACE SHAPE Pilot, to stimulate SMEs to use HPC for industrial innovation and competitiveness, has selected 10 SME applicants to participate. These 10 small European companies will receive intensive support to incorporate HPC into their business models.

SHAPE (SME HPC Adoption Programme in Europe) is a new pan-European programme supported by PRACE. The programme aims to raise awareness and provide European SMEs with the expertise necessary to take advantage of the innovation possibilities created by HPC, thus increasing their competitiveness.

The programme will deploy progressively a set of complementary services towards SMEs such as information, training, access to expertise (domain science as well as applied mathematics and HPC) for co-developing a concrete industrial project to be demonstrated using PRACE HPC resources.

'These first 10 selected applications developed by SMEs give an excellent impression of what industrial players both large and small are capable of when given access to the right tools, in this case PRACE’s world-class HPC resources and services,' said Dr Jürgen Kohler, chair of the PRACE industrial advisory committee.

'We will be attentively following the outcomes of these selected projects which will clearly demonstrate how PRACE can foster co-operation between science and industry to strengthen European industrial competitiveness.'
