European Commission proposed setting up the headquarters of the EuroHPC in the Grand Duchy

January 12, 2018

As part of the high performance computing (HPC) initiative, which is a European project of strategic interest, the European Commission today proposed setting up the headquarters of the joint undertaking EuroHPC in the Grand Duchy. As a new legal and financial structure, EuroHPC will acquire, set up, and deploy across Europe an integrated pan-European infrastructure of super-calculators.

The EuroHPC initiative is the real-life follow-up to the declaration signed in Rome in March 2017 by the Grand Duchy, Italy, Spain, France, Germany, Portugal and the Netherlands as the official starting point of the strategy – initiated by the Grand Duchy – to set up a European HPC network. Belgium, Slovenia, Bulgaria, Switzerland, Greece and Croatia all joined the initiative during 2017.
