PRACE Pre-Commercial Procurement

Whole System Design for Energy Efficient HPC

Through the Third PRACE Implementation Phase Project (PRACE-3IP), PRACE is considering undertaking a joint Pre-Commercial Procurement (PCP) procedure addressing the major issue of the energy efficiency of large scale supercomputers.

This PCP aims to foster innovation for economic growth to ensure sustainable high quality public services in Europe and should lead to energy efficient HPC systems suitable for operation within the PRACE infrastructure.

The PCP Call for Tender is planned to be published on Tenders Electronic Daily (TED) this autumn (2013). PRACE will announce the actual date of the launch on the PRACE website.
