The awarded projects received 387.3 million core hours (37% of the total hours) on Fermi @ CINECA.

Seven overall scientific domains are represented: 8 projects are linked to the fields of Biochemistry, Bioinformatics and Life Sciences; 16 to Chemistry; 3 to Earth System Sciences; 8 to Engineering; 5 to Fundamental Physics; 1 to Mathematics and Computer Sciences; and 7 to Universe Sciences.

The largest allocation under the 10th Call is the project entitled Surfing for Thermals in Turbulent Flows led by Roberto Verzicco of the Physics of Fluids Group at the University of Twente in the Netherlands. His project received close to 69 million core hours on Fermi @ CINECA and is also supported by an ERC grant.

Selected proposals will receive allocations to PRACE resources from March 2015 to March 2016.
