Access to HPC resources and services can help firms increase their competitiveness by reducing time-to-market, improving product reliability and safety, and developing innovative industrial processes, services and products. PRACE offers European companies free of charge exploratory access to its HPC infrastructure, training courses, and academic experts to help companies evaluate the business benefits of HPC.
As recommended by its Industrial Advisory Committee (IAC), PRACE will include in its 19th Call for Proposals for Project Access a pilot to increase the industrial uptake of Tier-0 HPC. The Call will allocate up to 10% of the offered resources to industrial projects, which will be evaluated separately from and before academic submissions to the same Call.
