HPC-Europa3 Eighth Call for Transnational Access Research Visits

The HPC-Europa3 team announces the Eighth Call for applications in the framework of Transnational Access Research Visit Programme.

HPC-Europa3 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-Europa3 pays travel and living costs.

Under the new Regional Access sub-programme, applicants in the South East Europe who have little or no HPC experience are particularly encouraged to visit host departments in Sweden and Greece respectively.

The application is advised to be formed in collaboration with the host, to be more easily successful. So, a compatible with scientific interests of the applicant host is recommended to be found as a first step of the application procedure. Applicants can contact Evangelia Athanasaki, if they need help in finding a host, or if they have any other questions.

HPC-Europa3 is now accepting applications with the closing date May 14, 2019 (23:59 CEST). Future calls for applications will be every 3 months, and programme continues until April 2021.
