Energy Oriented Center of Excellence

EoCoE is one of the 8 centers of excellence in computing applications recently established within the Horizon 2020 programme of the European Commission.  The primary objective of all the newly formed Centres of Excellence is to help strengthen Europe’s leadership in HPC applications by tackling various challenges in important areas like renewable energy, materials modelling and design, molecular and atomic modelling, climate change, Global Systems Science, bio-molecular research, and tools to improve HPC applications performance.

With a total budget of 5.5 M€, EoCoE will assist the energy transition via targeted support to four carbon-free energy pillars: Meteorology, Materials, Water and Fusion, each with a heavy reliance on numerical modeling. These four pillars will be anchored within a strong transversal multidisciplinary basis providing high-end expertise in applied mathematics and High Performance Computing (HPC). EoCoE, led by Maison de la Simulation (France), is structured around a Franco-German hub (Maison de la Simulation - Jülich Research Centre) coordinating a pan-European network, gathering a total of 8 countries and 23 teams. Its partners are strongly engaged in both the HPC and energy fields.

The Supercomputing Conference and its accompanying exhibition (12-17 November 2017) is the world's most important and largest event in the high-performance computing industry. This year's edition, held in Denver (Colorado), focuses on the theme of "HPC connects". Traditionally, PSNC is also present among the centres presenting its achievements.
