Czech Republic joins EuroHPC Initiative

Today the European Union announced that the Czech Republic is the 14th country to sign the European declaration on high-performance computing. The initiative aims at building European supercomputers that would rank among the world’s top three by 2022-2023. “We are prepared to provide the Czech national HPC capacities and capabilities for this joint mission and contribute to accomplish it successfully.”

Panel Discussion on How Europe Can Attain World Leadership in HPC

“HPC is moving towards its next frontier – more than 100 times faster than the fastest machines currently available in Europe,” said Andrus Ansip, European Commission Vice-President for the Digital Single Market. “But not all EU countries have the capacity to build and maintain such infrastructure, or to develop such technologies on their own. If we stay dependent on others for this critical resource, then we risk getting technologically ‘locked’, delayed or deprived of strategic know-how. Europe needs integrated world-class capability in supercomputing to be ahead in the global race.”
