This study "SMART 2014/0021" analyses the progress of the European HPC Strategy toward ensuring European leadership in the supply and use of HPC systems and services by 2020, and provides recommendations for its implementation. The study results provide insights on the worldwide context of the HPC and its strategic role in social, scientific and economic innovation. The intertwining of HPC with a growing number of industrial applications and scientific domains makes HPC the engine to power the new global digital economy, and places HPC as one of the key contributors to the Digital Single Market (DSM) strategy.
The study findings will support the EC report to the European Parliament and Council on the implementation of the HPC strategy by the end of 2015. Read more
