HPC-Europa First Call for Transnational Access Research Visits

The HPC-Europa team announces that the Transnational Access Research Visit Programme is back!

HPC-Europa is an EC-funded programme which allows researchers to carry out short transnational access visits to collaborate with a research department working in a similar field. The programme is open to researchers of all levels, from postgraduate students to the most senior professors. Applicants can be working in any discipline, but must require the use of High Performance Computing facilities (for large-scale computer modelling, etc). Visitors work closely with a host research group working in a similar field of research. There are many research groups already associated with the programme as host research groups, but new hosts can join at any time. 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.

Visits can last between 3 weeks and 3 months. HPC-Europa pays travel and living costs.

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.

HPC-Europa is now accepting applications with a first closing date of September 7, 2017 (12:00PM CEST). Applicants will be informed of the results before the end of October, with some visits starting in the last weeks of 2017. Future closing dates will be held every 3 months, and programme continues until April 2021.
