HPC-Europa: EC-funded research visits using high performance computing
The HPC-Europa team is excited to announce that our Transnational Access research visit programme is back!
We are now accepting applications again, with a first closing date of Thursday September 7, 2017 (at 12:00pm CET). We plan to inform applicants of the results before the end of October, with some visits starting in the last weeks of 2017.
Future Calls will be held every 3 months, and the HPC-Europa3 programme continues until April 2021.
HPC-Europa is an EC-funded programme which allows researchers to carry out short "transnational access" visits to collaborate with a research department working in a similar field. Applicants can be working in any discipline, but must require the use of high performance computing facilities (for large-scale computer modelling, etc). HPC-Europa pays travel and living costs, and visits can last between 3 weeks and 3 months.
The programme is open to researchers of all levels, from postgraduate students to the most senior professors.
Visitors work closely with a "host" research group working in a similar field of research. We have many research groups already associated with the programme as "host" research groups, but new hosts can join at any time, so just let us know if there is someone with whom you would like to collaborate who is not on our list. However, note that host researchers must be in the same country as one of the participating HPC centres: Finland, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, or the UK.
Following EC guidelines, applications are particularly encouraged from the new EU member countries and those who do not have access to similar computing facilities at their home institute. Under the new "Regional Access" sub-programme, applicants in the Baltic states and South East Europe who have little or no HPC experience are particularly encouraged to visit host departments in Sweden and Greece respectively.
