In September 2020 began one of the most emblematic European projects in the area of high performance computing, EuroCC, in which LIP is involved
This project, in articulation with the Castiel project, aims to establish a network of national competencies in the fields of advanced computing and artificial intelligence in order to make these technologies accessible to a wider range of users from industry, research, public administration and society at large.
The projects EuroCC and Castiel, with a budget of around 60 million euros, will allow for the creation of 33 competence centers spread across Europe. EuroCC counts on the participation of six national institutions, including LIP that is in charge of the dissemination area. National coordination is a responsibility of FCT.
