Danish research benefits extremely well from PRACE

Danish researchers have been able to use high performance supercomputing (HPC) for the past 10 years via the Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe called PRACE. This has led to a lot of advanced research projects, that can now be explored in a comprehensive overview.

Actually, more than 1.000 million CPU hours have been awarded to Denmark, which means that Danish researchers have been able to use compute time on the European supercomputers and perform calculations that would otherwise have taken 30.000 years to calculate using a single laptop.

Denmark is a member of PRACE (Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe), which gives the right to all Danish researchers and Danish Industry to apply for compute time. However, only companies with their headquarters or their primary research in Europe can apply for computational resources.



PRACEdays18 is the central event of the European HPC Summit Week, and is hosted by PRACE’s Slovenian Member ULFME – University of Ljubljana, Faculty of Mechanical Engineering. The conference will bring together experts from academia and industry who will present their advancements in HPC-supported science and engineering.


PRACE - international supercomputers

PRACE (Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe) is a collaboration between a number of European countries. Participants get the opportunity to use very large supercomputer facilities around Europe.

DeiC is the Danish national member of PRACE. That gives Danish researchers access to the resources. The PRACE high performance computing facilities (HPC) are much larger than the systems available in Denmark.
