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. In addition, CINECA hosts one of the pan-European pre-exascale supercomputers, Leonardo.



The Jülich Supercomputing Centre (JSC) at Forschungszentrum Jülich (JUELICH) is a major German HPC centre and member of GCS. JSC operates JUWELS, currently one of the most powerful supercomputers in Europe, and makes it available for research to academia and industry. In addition, JSC provides JUNIQ, the first quantum computing infrastructure, and will host JUPITER, the first exascale supercomputer in Europe, expected to be launched in 2024.



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.

CSC is a Finnish centre of expertise in ICT, providing services at an internationally high level of quality, for research, education, culture, public administration and enterprises to help them thrive and benefit the society at large. CSC is operating a number of research infrastructures including the national research network Funet, the energy efficient data centre Kajaani with its HPC and Cloud computing facility, the Finnish node of the biomedical computing infrastructure ELIXIR, PRACE Finland, and a National Research Data Platform. In addition, one of the pan-European pre-exascale supercomputers, LUMI, will be hosted by CSC in the Kajaani data centre.
