  4. HPC-Europa3: fourth call for...

Dear Users,
The HPC-Europa3 team is happy to announce that we are now accepting applications again, with the next closing date on Thursday 17th May 2018 (23:59 CET).
We plan to inform applicants of the results before by the end of June, with visits starting after the summer.
Future closing dates will be held every 3 months, and the HPC-Europa3 programme continues until April 2021.

If you have not heard of HPC-Europa3 before, please read on for more information!
HPC-Europa 3 is an EC-funded programme which allows researchers to carry out short (between 3 weeks and 3 months) “transnational access” visits to collaborate with a research department working in a similar field. HPC-Europa3 pays travel and living costs.
Applicants can be working in any discipline, but MUST require the use of High Performance Computing facilities (for large-scale computer modelling, etc). Visitors will work closely with a “host” research group working in a similar field of research. We have many research groups already associated  with the programme as “host” research groups, but new hosts can join at any time, so just let us know if there is someone with whom you would like to collaborate who is not on our list. However, note that host researchers must be in the same country as one of the participating HPC centres: Finland, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden or the UK.
The programme is open to researchers of all levels, from postgraduate students to the most senior professors.
Following EC guidelines, applications are particularly encouraged from the new EU member countries and those who do not have access to similar computing facilities at their home institute. Under the new “Regional Access” sub-programme, applicants in the  Baltic states and South East Europe who have little or no HPC  experience are particularly encouraged to visit host departments in Sweden and Greece respectively.  More information is provided on our  webpage.
