Project Partners

The project partners, listed in the following, are all major European supercomputing centres that are actively contributing to the Human Brain Project:

Partner Description

 

 

The Barcelona Supercomputing Center – Centro Nacional de Supercomputación (BSC) is the national supercomputing centre in Spain specialized in high performance computing. Our mission is two-fold: to provide infrastructure and supercomputing services to Spanish and European scientists and to generate knowledge and technology to transfer to business and society.

 

 

CEA as a whole is a major player throughout the value chain of HPC from R&D in the development of silicon technology, architecture of processors, system integration, software environments and tools through to use of numerical simulation in many different areas related to the missions of CEA. CEA also owns and operates two world-class computing infrastructures (TERA and TGCC), and deploys related HPC services, for the benefit of national and European research, defense, and industry.

 

 

The CINECA Inter-University Consortium is the Italian centre for High Performance Computing. With a mandate of the National Ministry for Education and Research, it provides Tier-0 resources for PRACE and contributes to the Human Brain Project as member of the sub-project for the High-Performance Analytics and Computing Platform.

 

 

The Jülich Supercomputing Centre at Forschungszentrum Jülich (JUELICH) is a major German HPC centre, member of GCS and provider of Tier-0 resources for PRACE. Within the  Human Brain Project, JUELICH leads the sub-project for the High-Performance Analytics and Computing Platform

 

 

EPFL is one of the two Swiss Federal Institutes of Technology. Associated with several specialised research institutes, the two Ecoles Polytechniques (Institutes of Technology) form the EPF domain , which is directly dependent on the Federal Department of Economic Affairs, Education and Research (EAER).

 

 

ETH Zurich is represented in FENIX by the Swiss National Supercomputing Centre (CSCS). Founded in 1991, CSCS develops and provides the key supercomputing capabilities required to solve challenging problems in science and/or society. The centre enables world-class research with a scientific user lab that is available to domestic and international researchers through a transparent, peer-reviewed allocation process. CSCS’s resources are open to academia, and are available as well to users from industry and the business sector.
