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 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 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.

We are delighted to announce the return of the much-loved HPC-Europa Transnational Access visitor programme.
HPC-Europa and its predecessor TRACS together supported more than 850 research visits to EPCC between 1993 and 2012. Over the last few years HPC-Europa has been much missed, judging by the number of former visitors and their colleagues and local host research groups who have contacted us to ask if there will be a new programme.
