Fortissimo Open Call 2 launched

28 September 2016

The Fortissimo Project has launched a second Open Call for proposals to carry out experiments in modelling and simulation, and high-performance data-analytics using cloud-based HPC.

The core objective of Fortissimo 2 is to promote the uptake of advanced modelling, simulation and data analytics services by European SMEs in the manufacturing sector. Adopting latest ICT technology is essential to providing innovative solutions to manufacturing challenges, leading to new and improved products and services. This in turn contributes to economic growth in the European market including greater competitiveness and the creation of new jobs.

Fortissimo 2 experiments must address engineering and manufacturing needs in the areas of high-performance data analytics or the  modelling and simulation of coupled physical processes. Proposals are invited for experiments with a budget of up to €175,000 with a duration of 1st May 2017 to 31st October 2018.

Full details of the competition can be found here: Or contact Mark Sawyer ( sends e-mail)) The closing date is 7th December 2016, at 17:00 Brussels local time.
