The High Performance Computing in Europe Taskforce was formed by representatives of European countries interested in shaping the European High Performance Computing Infrastructure. HET has set the framework of a European policy in the area of High Performance Computing. HET reports to the countries represented in the present Taskforce and to the e-IRG. The Taskforce was chaired by Kimmo Koski from CSC (Finland). HPC in Europe was founded in Vienna, Austria, on 7 June 2006 in a meeting initiated by prof. dr.
