One of the research infrastructures in the ESFRI Roadmap is the Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe (PRACE). The main objective of the PRACE research infrastructure is to provide a pan-European HPC service, including a leading edge supercomputing infrastructure and corresponding support for its effective use. This infrastructure guarantees European researchers access to the best supercomputer facilities in a highly competitive world. PRACE is the only ESFRI initiative on eInfrastructure.
The pur pose of this application is to enable the Norwegian High-Performance Computing infrastructure to be a constructive partner in the Implementation Phase of PRACE and assist Norwegian researchers in accessing and making efficient use of the PRACE infrastruct ure.
