focus on your project
ENCCS is working on removing possible bottlenecks in user management, resource allocation, and lacking experience that prevents projects from utilizing EuroHPC resources, whether it is due to technical challenges, policies (e.g. national vs. European infrastructure) or legislation.
ENCCS offers hands-on advice to users writing EuroHPC applications and share experience from previous successful projects, e.g. about technical proposal requirements, and assists users requiring new technical access mechanisms to EuroHPC resources.
For more information on Access Policy please follow this link. The document provides a high-level framework of an Access Policy for the allocation of the Union’s share of the supercomputers co-funded by the Joint Undertaking.
EuroHPC JU Regular Access Call
The EuroHPC JU Regular Access, open to all fields of science, industry, and the public sector, calls for applications which will enable progress and innovation in the domains covered. The call is continuously open with pre-defined
cut-off dates (3 per year) that trigger the evaluation of the proposals submitted up to this date. Regular Access is intended for large-scale projects demonstrating excellence in their domain with significant European added-value.
EuroHPC JU Development Access Call
The EuroHPC Development call is designed for projects focusing on code and algorithm development and optimisation. This can be in the context of research projects from academia or industry, or as part of large public or private
funded initiatives as for instance Centres of Excellence or Competence Centres. Users will typically be allocated a small number of node hours; the allocation period is one (1) year and is renewable up to 2 times.
EuroHPC JU Benchmark Access
The EuroHPC Benchmark call is designed for code scalability tests, the outcome of which is to be included in the proposal in a future EuroHPC Extreme Scale and Regular Access call. Users receive a limited number of node hours;
the maximum allocation period is three (3) months.
Prace Development Access
The PRACE Development call is intended for code development and optimisation by the user. Users get a small number of core hours. The allocation period is six months.
Prace Benchmark Access
The PRACE Benchmark call is meant for code scalability tests, the outcome of which is to be included in the proposal in a future PRACE call. Users receive a limited number of core hours; the allocation period is two months.

There have been multiple successful applications from Swedish organisations from multiple scientific areas that can be seen in the pages below.
EuroHPC JU Calls
Old PRACE calls
“Without the help of ENCCS we would be unaware of the possibilities of access to EuroHPC JU supercomputing resources for Northvolt AB. ENCCS helped us in all the steps of our application, it’s support was fundamental to understand which kind of resources where the best option for our needs. Furthermore, from a more technical point of view, the support of ENCCS was fundamental to write and review the project proposal and to help us in justifying our needs in terms of computational resources and parallelization objectives.”
“With the help of ENCCS we successfully applied for PRACE preparatory access (…) ENCCS has been a great help in clarifying the PRACE requirements, guiding our use of the PRACE application system, directing us to the right technical documentation and procedures, giving us input on our preparatory proposal, providing advice on the scaling tests needed for the full proposal, and helping our communication with the computer center where we obtained preparatory access (…) Ιt is good to have access to help from experts that streamlines the application process and prevents mistakes that could lead to a rejected proposal.”
“ENCCS was essential for my groups successful LUMI application. The targeted help we received allowed us to quickly understand the nature of the LUMI supercomputer and why this can be highly beneficial to our science goals. ENCCS walked us through the necessary steps and kept us up to date regarding essential deadlines. This kind of focused help is a new to us, and we are very happy with the whole experience.”
“ENCCS exposed in a very efficient way the PRACE resources to the scientists active within the Department of Engineering Mechanics at KTH. Moreover, ENCCS guided us to build the application required to access the PRACE resources, application which was successful. I believe that ENCCS guidance and consulting is essential for the Swedish scientists, enabling us to explore the HPC possibilities beyond Sweden.”
