Successful Swedish applications – PRACE Tier-0 call

The PRACE 21st project call to Tier-0 systems was open on 3rd of March with a closing date 5th of May 2020. In total 63 eligible proposals were received, of which 51 were awarded, a total of 2.45 billion core hours on 7 Tier-0 PRACE systems. The proposals awarded under the 21st Call are led by principal investigators from 16 different countries. These proposals represent six scientific domains: 9 proposals are linked to the fields of Biochemistry, Bioinformatics and Life Sciences; 7 to Chemical Sciences and Materials; 2 to Earth System Sciences; 17 to Engineering; 11 to Fundamental Constituents of Matter; and 5 to Universe Sciences.

The 21st Call for Proposals is the first call to include three systems that offer GPUs. In addition to Piz Daint at ETH Zurich/CSCS (Switzerland) and Marconi100 at CINECA (Italy), JUWELS Booster at GCS/JSC (Germany) also offers GPUs for this call. Overall, the resources allocated under the 21st Call in GPU-based systems exceed 1 billion core hours, surpassing the corresponding allocation in GPU-based systems under previous calls.

Selected proposals receive allocations to PRACE resources from 1 October 2020 to 30 September 2021. More information at https://prace-ri.eu/prace-21st-call-for-proposals-continues-support-to-ground-breaking-research-in-academia-and-industry/
