Funding available for SMEs that want to trial HPC
A second call for proposals aimed at SMEs wishing to trial high-performance computing (HPC) has been launched by SHAPE (SME HPC Adoption Programme in Europe).
SHAPE is a pan-European programme supported by the PRACE project. The Programme aims to raise awareness and provide European SMEs with the expertise necessary to take advantage of the innovation possibilities created by HPC, thus increasing their competitiveness. The programme allows SMEs to benefit from the expertise and knowledge developed within the top-class PRACE Research Infrastructure.
