Installation of a new petascale supercomputer

 

In December, the installation of our new petascale supercomputer with the working name EURO_IT4I, has started. The supercomputer will be put into operation during the first half of this year. You can watch the progress of the installation in the photo gallery.

Research supported by the IT4Innovations supercomputers won the Czech Head Award

Jiří Dědeček together with Edyta Tabor and Štěpán Sklenák from J. Heyrovský Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Czech Academy of sciences found a unique way to turn methane into methanol, for which they received the Czech Head Invention Award. Using the IT4Innovations supercomputers in their research, they computationally predicted results, which they eventually confirmed experimentally. They received 32,458,000 core hours of IT4Innovations computational resources for their research within six Open Access Grant Competitions.

FF4EuroHPC Open Call

Shift your business to the next level with the help of HPC

This call for proposals from FF4EuroHPC project targets the highest quality application projects involving innovative, agile SMEs, supported by the necessary players in the value chain for the effective completion of the experiment work plan. Proposals are sought that address business challenges from European SMEs from varied application domains, but preference will be given to engineering and manufacturing, or sectors able to demonstrate fast economic growth or particular economic impact for Europe.

The new edition of the handbook about European HPC projects

The new edition of the handbook about European HPC projects is available online. The handbook European High-Performance Computing Projects describes 50 ongoing European projects, including those on which our colleagues from IT4Innovations collaborate – LEXIS Project, ExaQUte, POP2 or EuroCC. Whether you are looking for project partners or you are just curious about the new projects, you can find everything HERE.

Review 2019

It is no exaggeration to say that the year 2019 will surely rank among those very significant and successful years in our center‘s history. Success was achieved in the field of research, supercomputing infrastructure development, cooperation with industry, and education, all of which are the main pillars of our activity. I am particularly pleased to share our achievements with you on the pages of our 2019 Review.

PRACE 22nd Call for Proposals for Project Access

The 22nd PRACE Call for Proposals for Project Access is open till October 27, 2021. The allocation of awarded resources on Tier-0 systems is made for 1 year at a time with its utilization starting on April 1, 2021.

Applicants can apply for a 12-month plan (Single-year Project) or a 24 or 36-month plan (Multi-year Project).

Mobility Atlas

Our colleagues from the Advanced Data Analysis and Simulation Lab led by Miroslav Vozňák are involved in implementing a unique project to develop a primary data passing interface to monitor population mobility in the territory of the Czech Republic with respect to the current spread of Covid-19 disease. This data is processed from anonymous operating data collected by T-Mobile CZ using the services of IT4Innovations.

20th Open Access Grant Competition

Institutions can apply for computational resources within Open Access Grant Competitions. The grant competition is announced 3 times a year (February, June, October) for employees of research, scientific and educational organizations.
