Applications open on July 19th
The Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia (FCT), through its FCCN unit, is promoting the second edition of the Call for Advanced Computing Projects. The call, which aims to strengthen the national technological and scientific system through Advanced Computing for Research and Innovation resources, will be accepting applications starting on 19 July.
Applications will be accepted in all scientific areas using High Performance Computing (HPC) and /or Scientific Cloud in three separate categories with different requirements: A0 - Experimental Access, A1 - Preparatory Access and A2 - Project Access.
The aim of the call is to encourage the use of HPC and Scientific Cloud computing resources to obtain new knowledge that enables scientific and technological advancement. These resources may be useful for simulations in areas as diverse as climate or molecular modelling, artificial intelligence and the study of complex problems in the creation of new materials or the improvement of industrial production lines.
This initiative is a collaboration between the FCT and the four operational centres, the Minho Advanced Computing Centre (MACC), the Advanced Computing Laboratory of the University of Coimbra (LCA-UC), the High Performance Computing of the University of Évora (HPC-UÉ) and the National Distributed Computing Infrastructure (INCD).
