Researchers from Krakow joins a consortium to develop a European supercomputer


Researchers from the AGH University of Science and Technology in Krakow will develop a supercomputer together with European partners. It will be 10 times faster than the currently fastest computer in Europe.

The works will be carried out as part of the European Joint Undertaking in the field of the Great EuroMill (EuroHPC Joint Undertaking). Declaration on Poland’s accession to EuroHPC was signed in 2018 by Deputy Prime Minister Jarosław Gowin. The Ministry of Science will allocate 5 million euros to develop the computer.

The consortium that is to develop, install and test the supercomputer includes Poland, Finland, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Switzerland. The installation is planned for 2020 and will take place in the Finnish data center in Kajaani.
Poland is represented by the Academic Computer Center Cyfronet of the AGH University of Science and Technology in Kraków.
