The objective of the Strategic Research Agenda (SRA) is to outline a roadmap for the implementation of a research programme aiming at the development of European HPC technologies. The European Technology Platform for High Performance Computing (ETP4HPC) is seeking feedback on this document from the HPC community (until the end of June 2016). Comments received will be used by the ETP4HPC to prepare the next full version of its SRA, planned for July 2017.

The ETP4HPC is an industry-led think tank and advisory group of companies and research centres involved in High-Performance Computing or Supercomputing technology research in Europe. It is also the private part of the HPC contractual Public-Private Partnership (cPPP), monitoring and managing a research investment programme supported by a €700 M investment by the EC.

The SRA 2015 delineates a roadmap for the achievement of European exascale capabilities focusing on the following areas: HPC System Architecture and Components, Energy and Resiliency, Programming Environment, System Software and Management, Big Data and HPC usage Models, Balance Compute, I/O and Storage Performance, Mathematics and algorithms for extreme scale HPC systems and Extreme scale demonstrators.

The approach followed to structure the SRA has been to combine ETP4HPC members technical and market knowledge (internal) with that of external experts and sources alike.

You can comment in the SRA until end of June 2016 by using this form. Any organisation or individual can express their view on this document. The collected comments will be used by the ETP4HPC to prepare the next full version of its SRA, which is due to be published in July 2017.
