Transnational Access

The project is based on a program of visit, in the form of traditional transnational access, with researchers visiting HPC centres and/or scientific hosts who will mentor them scientifically and technically for the best exploitation of the HPC resources in their research. The visitors will be funded for travel, accommodation and subsistence, and provided with an amount of computing time suitable for the approved project.

The calls for applications will be issued 4 times per year and published online on the HPC-Europa3 website.

A web-based interface will be set-up to submit applications. Detailed guidelines and an on-line FAQ will be also provided to assist the applicants with the process. Each application will be then reviewed independently according to its technical and scientific merits, before being considered by the Scientific Users’ Selection Panel.

The first call for visitors is planned for June 2017 and more information on the process will be added in the near future.

Transnational Access HPC Sites:

If you wish to apply for a visit grant and if you intend to spend a research period in one of the 9 centres around Europe, please head the guidelines and then fill in the on-line form.

This is the only way to apply for the project but if you have any question you can contact us.

The Supercomputing centres participating in the Transnational Access activity are: CINECA (Bologna - IT), EPCC (Edinburgh - UK), BSC (Barcelona - SP), HLRS (Stuttgart - DE), SurfSARA (Amsterdam - NL), CSC (Helsinki - FIN), GRNET (Athens, GR), KTH (Stockolm, SE), ICHEC (Dublin, IE).

If your application has been accepted by the Scientific Users' Selection Panel we will contact you in a short time in order to arrange your visit.

If you have already submitted an application and you have received communication from the project staff that your request has been accepted, in these pages you can find information about CINECA and about the organization of your stay.
