Marcos Maroñas was an HPC-Europa3 visitor in 2019, when he was a PhD student at Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC). Marcos has now completed his PhD and recently relocated to Edinburgh – in the middle of the pandemic – to take up a new job. Here Marcos tells us how his career has developed.

The HPC-Europa3 Transnational Access programme funds short collaborative research visits for computational scientists working in any discipline which can use HPC.
Former HPC-Europa visitors are invited to attend the Transnational Access Meeting (TAM), to present the results of their visits. With approximately 40% of visitors being postgraduates, for many it also provides a supportive environment for their first conference presentation.

EPCC is one of nine centres offering HPC-Europa3 visits, along with partners in Finland, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, and Sweden. The HPC-Europa3 Transnational Access programme offers:
- Access to world-class HPC systems to academic and industrial researchers
- Scientific collaboration with host researchers in any field
- Technical support by the HPC centres
- Travel and living expenses reimbursed.
Over 600 HPC-Europa3 applications have now been approved for visits to collaborate with more than 350 different host researchers in the 9 participating countries. There have been 88 HPC-Europa3 visits to EPCC, by researchers working in 19 different countries. The HPC-Europa3 programme has now been running for three years. Its main focus is its visitor programme, which funds short collaborative research visits in any discipline in which high performance computing can be used.

The HPC-Europa3 programme funds collaborative visits of up to three months for researchers at any level, in any discipline, who need access to HPC resources.
HPC-Europa3 has now been welcoming visitors to EPCC – and another eight HPC centres around Europe – for nearly two years. The successful applicants to date are from a total of 43 countries. Priority is given to researchers working in the EU and Associated States, but limited places are available for researchers working elsewhere who can make a strong case for funding. There is a roughly equal split among the visitors between post-graduates, postdocs, and experienced researchers, and a wide variety of disciplines are represented.
We have been pleased to see that, compared to previous programmes, there has been an increase in the participation of female researchers, who have accounted for 23% of successful applications so far.

The highly successful NEXTGenIO project is now drawing to a close after nearly four years. EPCC colleagues will be at ISC19 presenting the results of the project at a booth presentation, a BoF, and a workshop presentation. Come along and find out more!

The HPC-Europa3 project funds short collaborative “Transnational Access” research visits using HPC.
In just 17 months EPCC has supported 50 HPC-Europa visits from research groups in a total of 15 countries. We are already seeing great results from our visitors, including at least seven publications.
Applications for repeat or reciprocal visits – either between the same researchers, or different members of the same groups – are testimony to the strength of the ongoing collaborative links fostered by the programme. Two of our first HPC-Europa3 visitors have even returned to their former host research groups for longer visits.

Next closing date for applications: 13th September 2018.
EPCC is a partner in the HPC-Europa3 Transnational Access programme, which funds collaborative visits using world-class HPC systems for researchers from any discipline.
HPC-Europa has always been successful at building lasting links between research groups in different European countries, with a long legacy of joint publications, ongoing reciprocal research visits, and visitors securing subsequent research posts in their former host department. This, for me, has always been one of the most satisfying aspects of working on this programme - the feeling that the work I do really helps researchers to advance their careers.

The HPC-Europa3 Transnational Access programme includes access to world-class HPC systems and scientific collaboration with host researchers in any field. If you want to find out more about the programme then this video, originally part of the ARCHER series of webinars, is an excellent starting point.

The programme's Third Call for applicants is now open. It will close on Wednesday 28th February 2018.
The interdisciplinary HPC-Europa programme, which provides access to some of Europe’s top HPC facilities, is now running again. The programme pays travel and living costs for short collaborative research visits to a scientific host in another country. Applications can be submitted at any time, with four closing dates per year.
