EuroHPC Governing Board holds first meeting in Luxembourg
The Governing Board of the European High-Performance Computing Joint Undertaking (EuroHPC) is meeting for the first time in Luxembourg today. The meeting deals with the JU's rules of functioning and its agenda for 2019. The European Commission and the 25 contributing European countries are represented at the Governing Board.
EuroHPC is a new legal and funding structure which will pool resources from 25 European countries, build supercomputing and data infrastructure, and support research and innovation in the domain. In September, the Council of the EU officially backed the Commission's proposal to establish the EuroHPC which will remain operational until the end of 2026. In the longer term, the Commission proposes to invest €2.7 billion in the Joint Undertaking to strengthen supercomputing and data processing in Europe as part of the Digital Europe Programme for 2021-2027 tabled in May 2018.
