Introduction

ParTec participates in nationally funded research projects as well as in EU-funded Exascale projects like the DEEP and SEA projects, CoE RAISE, HPCQS and EUPEX.

There, ParTec contributes to the architectural developments as well as to the runtime and middleware of the deployed prototype and production systems, and thereby puts a special focus on improvements and extensions to the scheduling and resource management for the MSA, including new types of modules, as well as the employed programming models, libraries, and management tools. In addition, ParTec supports the coordinator internally at the project management level in some of these projects.

A number of the newly approved projects are equally funded by national entities and EuroHPC JU.

DEEP Projects

The DEEP projects developed a novel, Exascale-enabling supercomputing platform along with the optimization of a set of grand-challenge codes simulating applications highly relevant for Europe’s science, industry and society. Within the follow-up projects DEEP-ER and DEEP-EST certain Exascale-related challenges were tackled and the MSA was brought to production maturity.

SEA Projects

The three SEA projects (DEEP-SEA, IO-SEA, and RED-SEA) have been selected for funding by the EuroHPC JU and started in April 2021. The projects complement each other and address some of the most critical aspects concerning the operation and use of an Exascale supercomputer: programming environment, data management, and interconnects.

CoE Raise

In CoE RAISE, researchers from academia and industry all over Europe target the development of novel and innovative AI technologies on heterogeneous HPC architectures towards Exascale along various use cases of societal importance. Technology transfer to industry, SMEs, and academia is accelerated, and education and support in qualifying codes and workflows is provided.

EUPEX

The EUPEX consortium aims to design, build, and validate the first EU platform for HPC, covering end-to-end the spectrum of required technologies with European assets: from the architecture, processor, system software, development tools to the applications. EUPEX will lay the foundations for Europe’s future digital sovereignty.

HPCQS

The aim of HPCQS is to prepare European research, industry and society for the use and federal operation of quantum computers and simulators. HPCQS is developing the programming platform for the quantum simulator, which will be integrated into modular HPC systems based on ParTec’s Modular Supercomputing Concept.
