To take the global lead in the field of development Supercomputers, wants the Europe where they intends to invest 8 billion euros. Europe’s goal is to create supercomputers that perform more than one quintillion (1018) operations per second.

As well as quantum computers and hybrid computers, combining elements of quantum and classical computing, which will be able to perform functions that no supercomputer is currently able to perform. It is estimated that this super computing infrastructure could be used in more than 800 European scientific, industrial and public applications.

As part of its strategy to achieve the Europe global lead in Supercomputers objective, the European Commission has proposed a new Regulation on the Joint Undertaking on High Performance European Computing. The new Regulation aims to update the previous one of 2018 for the establishment of the European High Performance Computing Joint Undertaking (EuroHPC Joint Undertaking).

Europe global lead in Supercomputers

The EuroHPC Joint Undertaking will make existing European super computing and quantum computing resources accessible to all users across Europe. These include the public sector and industrial users, in particular small and medium-sized enterprises, regardless of where they are based.

The new budget is currently under negotiation, but will be supported by Horizon Europe, the Digital Europe programme and the Connecting Europe mechanism. The new Regulation on the European High Performance Computing Joint Undertaking (EuroHPC Joint Undertaking) is proposed for adoption by the Council of the European Union.

Preparations for the continuation of the Joint Undertaking’s activities from 2021 onwards are already under way: For example, 20 projects have been selected to develop innovative HPC applications and services. Applications of medicine, disease control and environmental protection are expected to be strengthened by the advent of high computing power systems.
