EU Funds Exscalate supercomputing platform to fight coronavirus

Today the European Commission allocated new funding to the Exscalate (E4C) consortium for projects to counter the Coronavirus pandemic and improve the management and care of patients. As part of the effort, the E4C consortium is leveraging EU’s supercomputing resources coupling them with some of the continent’s best life-science research labs to counter international pandemics faster and more efficiently. “At the core of the project is Exscalate, the most powerful, cost-efficient, and intelligent supercomputing platform in the world, developed by Dompé. Exscalate leverages a “chemical library” of 500 billion molecules, thanks to a processing capacity of more than 3 million molecules per second.”
