PRACE–RI (The Partnership For Advanced Computing in Europe – Research Infrastructure, abbreviated as PRACE) is an international non-profit organization based in Brussels. Currently, more than twenty-five member states are engaged in the initiative, jointly building an all-European supercomputer network that allows access to high-capacity computing resources.

PRACE’s mission is to support scientific discoveries and the development of applied research across all scientific branches by providing supercomputing capacity. The objective is to enhance the competitiveness of European science, research and industry.

Thanks to a large number of members and a high level of competitiveness, PRACE offers a wide range of resources and services for complicated computing applications in Europe.

Motivated by the effort to support the largest number of potential users and to train a new generation of scientists and engineers, PRACE is introducing a vast education system in demanding computations, the High Performance Computing (HPC). It also promotes collaboration with industry via seminars focused on industrial research centres.

Last but not least, PRACE aims to develop the European supercomputing industry. Two examples include an initiative dealing with the energy efficiency of computing systems and decreasing their impact on the environment.
