Successful Swedish applications within the PRACE DECI17 HPC systems access call

Nine Swedish applications for compute resources to European HPC systems have been successfully accepted through the DECI17 call for proposals that closed 31st of January 2021 with a project start date 1st of June 2021. These are:

  1. Dr. Walter Villanueva (KTH), Convective Heat And mass transfer in INternally heated Molten pools (CHAIN)
  2. Prof. Mihai Mihaescu (KTH), Large-scale Simulations of Industrial Flows (LSIF)
  3. Prof. Natalia Skorodumova (KTH), Multiscale Modelling of defective Ceria at finite temperatures(P2021CEO2SB)
  4. Prof. Andrei Ruban (KTH), Ab Initio modeling of chemical vapor deposition for efficient computational design of new advanced coatings (AMCVD2)
  5. Dr. Zilvinas Rinkevicius (KTH), Magnetic properties of nanodiamonds: A large-scale ab initio modeling
  6. Dr. Torbjörn Larsson  (Faurecia Creo AB), Accurate and Efficient CFD Predictions of Fast Re-Fueling of Hydrogen Storage Tanks(H2CFD)
  7. Dr. Camilla Gustafsson (EnginZime AB), Engineering enzymes for increased stability (EnginZyme)
  8. Prof. Biplabb Sanyal (UU), Computational design of novel quantum states in 2D topological materials (Q2Dtopomat)
  9. Prof. Henrik Grönbeck (CTH), Multiscale modeling of nanoparticle catalysis (NANOCAT)

ENCCS, the Swedish National Competence Center within HPC/HPDA/AI-assisted four out of these nine successful applicants with the DECI17 application procedure. Two of these four applicants are Swedish small and medium enterprises (SMEs) which paves the way for more industrial collaborations between SMEs and ENCCS. European SMEs are especially welcome to apply for PRACE resources and Sweden is topping the success rate charts by the number of applicants from Swedish SMEs.

Starting from the 20th of April 2021 the EuroHPC Joint Undertaking (EuroHPC JU) strengthened the European HPC ecosystem with even more powerful supercomputers which are of pre-exascale and petascale range. These systems are now available for the Swedish researchers from academia, industry and public sector to be used in their computations and the calls for access are also open through the same PRACE-EuroHPC portal ( ENCCS welcomes all types of applicants to contact us for assistance with both PRACE and EuroHPC JU systems access call application procedures.
