The main focus of the session will be put on role of European High Performance Computing Joint Undertaking (EuroHPC JU) in the joint effort with big data and AI community to support main European challenges by providing the most powerful computing and data infrastructure in Europe. During the session will be discussed the following hot topics:

  • How this joint effort helps academia, industry and SMEs to meet the challenges of our recent era (in several domains like healthcare, energy, etc.)?
  • How this approach contributes to the Europe sovereignty in the context of new exascale era of supercomputers and quantum technologies?
  • What is the strategy of EuroHPC JU and European Commission in supporting the competitiveness and resilience of European industry and society in (developement and use of) digital technologies?
  • What is the experience with the engagement of European private members and European member states to support these challenging ideas (impact on the member states of EuroHPC JU, benefits)?
  • How successful is the approach in the context of realised calls and the new topics supported in Horizon Europe/Digital Europe Programmes?
  • How this approach contributes to education and skills development in use of supercomputing technologies for Big Data and AI applications?

EuroHPC JU is a joint initiative between the EU, European countries and private members. The mission of the EuroHPC JU is to develop, deploy, extend and maintain an integrated world-class supercomputing, quantum computing and data infrastructure in the European Union and to develop and support a highly competitive and innovative supercomputing ecosystem.

The EuroHPC JU was created in 2018 and reviewed in 2021 by means of Regulation Council Regulation (EU) 2021/1173. 32 European countries are currently taking part in the initiative and pooling their resources with the EU and private partners to enable the EU to become a world leader in supercomputing.
