About DECI

DECI is a European Union scheme that gives European scientists access to high performance computing resources. Find out more on the PRACE DECI Projects page.

DECI provides single project cross-national access to European Tier-1 resources (national systems). Access will be awarded for a period of 12 months, beginning 1st Nov 2013. Please note that, in addition to offering access to computing resources, applications-enabling and porting, assistance from experts at the leading European HPC centres is offered (on request and depending on availability) to enable projects to be run on the most appropriate Tier-1 platforms in PRACE. We anticipate accepting around 40 proposals for DECI-11.
