Action Objectives and Grant Periods Goals

Action Aim – Primary Objective


The Action MoU Aim


The main objective of the Action is to structure and co-ordinate research activity on HPC-enabled Modelling and Simulation for Big Data problems across Europe.

Action (Secondary) Objectives


MoU Action Secondary Objectives

SO1 To build an effective, durable and active working community of European researchers in the area, with a span of about 60 research institutions and companies, more than 15 COST Countries
SO2 Constantly strive to expand the Action’s activities to other participants, increasing both the number of research institutions and companies, and that of COST Countries
SO3 To foster the formation of new multi-disciplinary expertise of competent researchers exploiting HPC-enabled MS, and contribute, in particular, to the formation of the new generations of such researchers
SO4 To disseminate obtained research results, identify best practices, and develop prototypes and supporting tools
SO5 Strengthen the collaboration with European companies in order to establish efficient technological transfer of the latest HPC-enabled MS techniques, methods, and tools, encouraging their industrial adoption
SO6 To establish the Action itself as a reference point of competence that can provide advisory support to industries and can offer informed expertise to policy makers in the strategic field of HPC-enabled MS
