eudat logo EUDAT project aims to contribute to the production of a Collaborative Data Infrastructure (CDI). The project´s target is to provide a pan-European solution to the challenge of data proliferation in Europe's scientific and research communities.

EUDAT is coordinated by CSC - IT Center for Science, Finland, and comprises 25 European partners, including data centers, technology providers, and research communities and funding agencies from 13 countries. The project was launched on the 1st of October 2011, and it is co-funded by the European Commission’s Framework Programme 7.

For questions about PDC activities at EUDAT please contact Erwin Laure.

CRESTA brings together four of Europe’s leading supercomputing centres, with one of the world’s major equipment vendors, two of Europe’s leading programming tools providers and six application and problem owners to explore how the exaflop challenge can be met.

The project has two integrated strands: one focused on enabling a key set of co-design applications for exascale, the other focused on building and exploring appropriate systemware for exascale platforms.

The six co-design vehicles represent an exceptional group of applications used by European academia and industry to solve critical grand challenge issues, including: biomolecular systems, fusion energy, the virtual physiological human, numerical weather prediction and engineering.

For questions about PDC activities in EPiGRAM please contact Stefano Markidis.


EPiGRAM is an EC-funded FP7 project on exascale computing. The aim of the EPiGRAM project is to prepare Message Passing and PGAS programming models for exascale systems by fundamentally addressing their main current limitations. The concepts developed will be tested and guided by two applications in the engineering and space weather domains chosen from the suite of codes in current EC exascale projects.

prace logo PRACE: The vision of the Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe is to enable and support European global leadership in public and private research and development. PRACE seeks to realize this vision by contributing to the advancement of European competitiveness in industry and research through provisioning of world leading persistent computing and data management resources and services.

The PRACE RI is a pan-European infrastructure seated in Brussels and established as an international non-profit association of European government representative organizations responsible for High-Performance Computing resources and services for public research. Named ‘Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe AISBL’, it currently has 21 members countries. PRACE is funded by member governments through their representative organizations and EU’s Seventh Framework Programme (FP7/2007-2013) under grant agreement n° RI-261557. The first PRACE computer systems and their operations are funded by the governments of the representative organizations hosting the systems.

EGI logo EGI: The objective of European Grid Initiative (a foundation established under Dutch law) is to create and maintain a pan-European Grid Infrastructure in collaboration with National Grid Iniatives (NGIs) in order to guarantee the long-term availability of a generic e-infrastructure for all European research communities and their international collaborators.

For questions about PDC activities at EGI please contact Gert Svensson.
INCF logo INCF: International Neuroinformatics Coordinating Facility: Promotes international activities in Neuroinformatics and related fields. The organization was formed in 2005 by the OECD Global Science Forum and currently has 15 member countries.

For questions about PDC activities at INCF please contact Mikael Djurfeldt.
ScalaLife logo ScalaLife is an EU-FP7 funded project, which goals were to improve the scalability and performance of several important Life Science applications.

The legacy of the project is the ScalaLife Competence Center for Computational Bio-molecular Research (, which is providing long-term expert support with efficient HPC usage and code optimization of selected codes.

For questions about PDC activities at ScalaLife please contact Rossen Apostolov.
NeIC logo NeIC, the Nordic e-Infrastructure collaboration, facilitates the development of advanced IT tools and services in areas of importance to Nordic researchers.
