Next week sees the fifth PRACE seminar for industry users being held at Bad Boll, near Stuttgart in Germany.

The seminar targets industrial users of HPC, who will have an opportunity to learn how PRACE resources, expertise, education and training can contribute to their business success. The seminar will act as a forum to develop or strengthen links with CEOs, CTOs, CIOs and R&D managers coming from large corporations and SMEs, as well as Independent Software Vendors. 

In particular, this event will provide an opportunity to elaborate on the industrial offer of PRACE. The PRACE Open R&D Access Programme, launched in 2012, now allows industrial users to avail of PRACE’s resources to conduct industrial, open research based on a peer review process. PRACE is committed to adapting this model to the needs of industry by implementing an SME support programme, an Industrial Advisory Committee and other initiatives. The event will serve as a forum to introduce and discuss these ideas.  

As a PRACE partner, EPCC will be represented at the seminar by myself (I'm part of the seminar organising committee) and by our business development manager George Graham.
