SEEM region’s students and researchers (even with little or no HPC experience) can participate in HPC-Europa programme of Transnational Access, by applying for the "Regional Access" sub-programme to visit host departments in Greece (costs paid).
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.
HPC-Europa is accepting applications, with closing date Thursday 21st February 2019 (23:59 CEST).
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). Visits can last between 3 weeks and 3 months.
HPC-Europa pays travel and living costs.
Visitors 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.
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 South East Europe who have little or no HPC experience are particularly encouraged to visit host departments in Greece. More information is provided on our webpage: http://www.hpc-europa.eu/welcome_grnet
