The European Commission’s communication “High Performance Computing: Europe’s place in a Global Race” perfectly underlines the strategic nature of HPC and sees a European Technology Platform (ETP) playing a crucial role. The ETP is an industry led forum open to any organization performing research in the area of HPC technologies in Europe with the objective to define Europe’s research priorities in developing European technology in all segments of the HPC solution supply chain. The ETP strengthens European competitiveness in the area of HPC, which is a key requirement for future research and innovation as well as addressing a wide range of social and economic challenges.
The ETP4HPC expects to be recognised as the ETP referenced by European Commission and complements the research capacities created through PRACE. The recently released Vision Paper (http://www.etp4hpc.eu/documents/ETP-key-documents.html) indicates that the ETP4HPC can significantly improve Europe’s position in the domain of HPC technologies through a research program building on mutual strengths, taking advantage of technological disruptions with tangible and sustainable market potential, targeting technologies meeting the needs of important applications, and facilitating the creation of start-ups and the development of the SME sector as well as utilizing synergies with other Information Technology sectors to influence next generation computing.

Researchers at the University of New Hampshire have captured a difficult-to-view singular event involving "magnetic reconnection"--the process by which sparse particles and energy around Earth collide producing a quick but mighty explosion--in the Earth's magnetotail, the magnetic environment that trails behind the planet.
Magnetic reconnection has remained a bit of a mystery to scientists. They know it exists and have documented the effects that the energy explosions can...
Biochips have been developed at TU Wien (Vienna), on which tissue can be produced and examined. This allows supplying the tissue with different substances in a very controlled way.
Cultivating human cells in the Petri dish is not a big challenge today. Producing artificial tissue, however, permeated by fine blood vessels, is a much more...
Faster and secure data communication: This is the goal of a new joint project involving physicists from the University of Würzburg. The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research funds the project with 14.8 million euro.
In our digital world data security and secure communication are becoming more and more important. Quantum communication is a promising approach to achieve...
On Saturday, 10 November 2018, the research icebreaker Polarstern will leave its homeport of Bremerhaven, bound for Cape Town, South Africa.
When choosing materials to make something, trade-offs need to be made between a host of properties, such as thickness, stiffness and weight. Depending on the application in question, finding just the right balance is the difference between success and failure
Now, a team of Penn Engineers has demonstrated a new material they call "nanocardboard," an ultrathin equivalent of corrugated paper cardboard. A square...
