HEROES: Hybrid Eco Responsible Optimized European Solution

Status: Active Start:

Primary tabs


Bridging the gap between HPC and IA/ML user communities and HPC Resources is key to unleash Europe's innovation potential. A lot of effort is done to build the European technologies able to deliver centralised, petascale/exascale HPC & ML. It is equally important to make such resources easily and responsibly consumable.

The project is aiming at developing in a 2 years time frame an innovative european software solution allowing industrial andscientific user communities to submit easily complex Simulation and ML workflows to HPC Data Centres and Cloud Infrastructures as well as being able to take informed decisions for selecting the best platform to achieve their goals in time, within budget and with the best energy efficiency. Although the project will be able, in the future, to provide value creation across multiple industrial sectors, the demonstrator and the initial focus will address workflows of strategic importance in the field of Renewable Energy and in Manufacturing applications where HPC is involved for the design of more Energy efficient products (for example in the design of energy efficient vehicles).

HEROES is supported by Meteosim, UL Renewables, EDF and Dallara which will advise on workflows relevant to such use cases. HEROES major innovations reside in its platform selection decision module and its application of marketplace concepts to HPC. The consortium involves 4 European SMEs which bring HPC to their clients and are facing everyday this market demand. A major SuperComputing Research Centre complements the project with its specific expertise in energy management and resource optimisation. At the end of the project, its outcomes will be commercialised.
