In this video, Anders Rhod Gregersen describes how PRACE makes HPC resources readily available to European industry.

“Supercomputers are key to industrial and societal progress. The overarching goal of PRACE is to provide a federated Europe with a science-driven supercomputing infrastructure, and support European industries in becoming globally competitive.” In fact, 97% of industrial companies that employ HPC consider it indispensable for their ability to innovate, compete, and survive and it is said today that “To out-compute is to out-compete.”

Like similar programs running in the USA or Japan, the PRACE Open Research Model now allows European companies access to world-class HPC resources and services in order to increase their competitiveness by reducing the time-to-market, improving reliability and safety of their products, and developing innovative industrial processes.

In this business model, industrial users may only use the facilities and services provided by the infrastructure for basic research and development purposes. The condition associated with this free access is for the industrial user to publish all results obtained at the end of the grant period.
