Exascale research in Europe is one of the grand challenges tackled by the Seventh Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development (FP7) and becomes even more important in Horizon 2020, the next European framework programme. Started in 2007 and with a total budget of over €50 Billion, the idea is to respond to Europe’s needs in terms of jobs and competitiveness, and to maintain leadership in the global knowledge economy. The “European Exascale Projects” represent the collective efforts of multiple collaborative projects funded by the European Commission to investigate and develop hardware and software for Exascale supercomputers.

One of the strategic objectives is to strengthen the scientific and technological base of European industry. Following this aim, the European Exascale projects will organize a European Exascale workshop addressing especially industry together with PRACEdays15
