Czech Republic joins European high-performance computing initiative
The Czech Republic is the 14th country to sign the European declaration on high-performance computing (HPC). The initiative aims at building European supercomputers that would rank among the world's top three by 2022-2023. With this signature, the Czech Republic announced that it will join EuroHPC Joint Undertaking – a new legal and funding structure that was launched earlier this month. The cooperation with a total budget of approximately EUR 1 billion will acquire, build and deploy across Europe world-class High-Performance Computing (HPC) infrastructure and enhance the development of the technologies and machines (hardware) as well as the applications (software) that would run on these supercomputers.
