The BSC STARS (SupercompuTing And Related applicationS) International Research Fellows program aims at fostering the training of highly skilled post-doc in all fields of High Performance Computing and related applications, specifically in Earth Science and Meteorology, in Life Sciences, Genomics and Personalised Medicine and in Computational Engineering and Physics and...

MED-GOLD will demonstrate the proof-of-concept for climate services in the agricultural sector by developing case studies for three hallmarks of the Mediterranean food system: grapes, olives and durum wheat. Agriculture is primarily climate driven and hence highly vulnerable to climate variability and change. Evidence suggests that the Mediterranean region is under immediate...

Recently system integrators have dramatically increased their efforts in heterogeneous computing by integrating heterogeneous cores on die (ARM), utilizing general purpose GPUs (NVIDIA), combining CPUs and GPUs on same die(Intel, AMD), leveraging FPGAs (Altera, Xilinx), integrating CPUs with FPGAs (Xilinx), and coupling FPGAs and CPUs in thesame package (IBM-Altera,...

The Mont-Blanc 2020 (MB2020) project ambitions to initiate the development of a future low-power European processor forExascale. MB2020 lays the foundation for a European consortium aiming at delivering a processor with great energyefficiency for HPC and server workloads. A first generation product is scheduled in the 2020 time frame.Our target is to reach exascale-level...

HiPEAC is a coordination and support action (CSA) that aims to structure and connect the European academic and industrialresearch and innovation communities in computing systems (i) by increasing the industrial membership, (ii) by integrating theEuropean innovation community, (iii) by organising activities to connect the research and innovation communities, (iv) bystimulating...

The European Climate Prediction system project (EUCP) has four objectives, all directly relevant to the work programme, and fully meet the challenge, scope and impact of the work programme.

1.Develop an innovative ensemble climate prediction system based on high-resolution climate models for Europe for the near-term (~1-40years), including improved methods used to characterise...

Large scale deployment of renewable energy (RE) is key to comply with the GHG emissions reduction set by the COP21 agreement. Despite cost competitive in many settings, RE diffusion remains limited largely due to its variability. This works as a major barrier to RE’s integration in electricity networks as knowledge of power output and demand forecasting beyond a few...

The Hi-OMICS PoC aims to pave the road to commercialisation of the Hi-OMICS Controller, a Software Defined Infrastructure Controller (SDI) specifically designed to efficiently manage Computational Genomics workloads running on upcoming SDI platforms. The necessary activities to achieve this status are structured in two blocks:

  • Market analysis, Commercialisation...

Climate, climate variability and change strongly impact Europe. Drought severely affects agriculture; precipitation extremes are associated with flooding, severe damage to properties and lives; temperature extremes can increase mortality; the seasonality and availability of snow affects water resources and winter tourism and wind speed or sunshine hours affect the production...
