The University of Edinburgh is leading an international bid to secure European funding to support the establishment of a European Institute of Innovation & Technology (EIT) “Knowledge and Innovation Community” (KIC) focused on healthy living and active ageing.
Funded by the EIT through Horizon 2020 (The EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation), LifeKIC, as the Scotland-led KIC is called, will support the EIT and EU’s goal of delivering the triple win of: increased healthy life years; economic growth and increased competitiveness; and sustainable health and care.

Reaching the Exascale is rightly posed as a combination of challenges related to (i) energy efficiency, (ii) heterogeneity and resiliency of computation, storage and communication, and (iii) the scale of the parallelism involved. Many discussions about Exascale focus on the first two challenges. This is understandable – building an Exascale system with today’s most energy efficient technology would still require around 480 MWatts.
