BSC (Spain), CEA (France), CINECA (Italy), ETH Zuerich/CSCS (Switzerland) and Forschungszentrum Juelich/JSC (Germany) jointly announce a Public Information Event, which is held on 15 March 2018 from 10:00 to 16:00 CET on the premises of BSC in Barcelona, Spain. The purpose of the event is to consult the market in preparation of a possible procurement of equipment and R&D services.
The partners plan 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. First steps in this direction are planned to be realised in the context of the European Human Brain Project, which will be the initial prime user of this research infrastructure.
The purpose of the ICEI Public Information Event is to inform all interested suppliers about the expectations and plans of the partners, as well as to gather their feedback. All interested suppliers of relevant solutions and services are invited to participate in this event. The overall number of participants is limited. To maximise the number of participating suppliers, the number of representatives per company is restricted to two.
The event will take place on 15th March 2018 from 10:00 am to 16:00 pm at the Sala de Juntes room, Rectorat Building, Jordi Girona 31, Barcelona.
