The European ICEI project is considered for being funded by the European Commission and is formed by the leading European Supercomputing Centres such as BSC (Spain), CEA (France), CINECA (Italy), ETH Zuerich/CSCS (Switzerland) and Forschungszentrum Juelich/JSC (Germany).
The ICEI project plans to deliver a set of e-infrastructure services that will be federated to form the Fenix Infrastructure. The distinguishing characteristic of this e-infrastructure is that data repositories and scalable supercomputing systems will be in close proximity and well integrated. The European Human Brain Project will be the initial prime user of this research infrastructure. It will take care of developing the community-specific services on top of the Fenix infrastructure services. Part of the resources within the ICEI infrastructure will be provided to European researches at large through PRACE.
