European Cooperation on Supercomputers Accelerating: Cyprus 15th Country to Join

European Cooperation on Supercomputers Accelerating: Cyprus 15th Country to Join

The European effort to build and deploy the next generation of supercomputers accessible everywhere in Europe and capable of at least 1018 calculations per second is moving up a gear. Cyprus became earlier this week the 15th country to participate by signing the European declaration on high-performance computing (HPC). 

Supercomputers are at the core of major innovations in many areas such as personalised medicine, energy saving or smart urban planning. They also hold great potential for job creation and competitiveness of the European economy. With this signature, Cyprus announced its intention to join the EuroHPC Joint Undertaking, once it will be adopted by the Council of the European Union. This Joint Undertaking is a legal and funding instrument aiming at pooling the European and national resources to build and deploy across Europe supercomputers that would rank among the world's top three by 2022-2023. 

The EuroHPC declaration was originally launched in March 2017 during the Digital Day and signed by France, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Portugal and Spain. Since then another eight countries have joined: in addition to Cyprus also Belgium, Slovenia, Bulgaria, Switzerland, Greece, Croatiaand the Czech Republic. 

Other Member States and countries associated with the Horizon 2020 framework programme are encouraged to participate in the initiative.
