Webinar: HPC-Europa: EC-funded collaborative research visits using High Performance Computing

Catherine Inglis, EPCC - Wednesday 18th April 2018 15:00 BST

HPC-Europa is an interdisciplinary EC-funded programme which allows researchers to carry out short "transnational access" collaborative visits to a research group working in a similar field. Visits can last between 3 weeks and 3 months, and the possible destinations include HPC centres in Italy, Spain, Germany, Netherlands, Finland, Greece, Sweden and Ireland (in addition to EPCC).

The programme is open to researchers of all levels, from postgraduate students to the most senior professors. Applicants can be working in any discipline, but MUST require the use of High Performance Computing facilities (for large-scale computer modelling, etc).

Closing dates are held 4 times per year. Attend this webinar to find out more about the programme in time to prepare an application for the next closing date on 17th May.
