The PRACE Summer of HPC 2018 provides an opportunity for up to 23 applicants from across Europe to apply to one of the PRACE supercomputing centres to work on a PRACE-related piece of work for eight weeks over the summer. 

The projects are preceded by a training week, hosted this year by EPCC in Edinburgh alongside ARCHER and PRACE Advanced Training Centre courses. The training week is designed to build a community between the Summer of HPC participants and to provide the necessary skills for students to begin their projects. Flights and accommodation are provided by the programme with a stipend to cover living costs.
