Description  and Scope

High-Performance Computing (HPC) technology is becoming increasingly important as a key-driver to push European economic growth and Scientific Research. A comprehensive tool that can support the development of a wide array of scientific domains (like Big Data, earth observation and ocean study) and impact societal challenges as well.

The Webinar aims at introducing the Phidias HPC initiative to the European HPC and Research community, including main features, expected impact and advantages for Research & HPC ecosphere. The project is paving the way to increase the HPC and Data capacities of the European Data Infrastructure by pursuing the following objectives:

  • Building a prototype for earth scientific data
  • Enabling Open Access to HPC Services
  • Strengthening FAIRisation
  • Creating a framework combining computing, dissemination and archiving resources

Main Takeaways:

  • Better understand how HPC technology can enable more accurate data observation
  • Discover the benefits of Standardised DATA/HPC services for Earth Sciences
  • Keep abreast with the current status of the European HPC ecosystem

Who should attend:

  • EU HPC community
  • Big data scientists
  • Earth observation researchers
  • Marine life experts
  • Research and academies

Bioengineer Cécile Nys from the French Research Institute IFREMER focused on the long-term improvement of archiving and cloud services in marine science. Making ocean data accessible and reusable is a core aspect of the Blue-Cloud project, and this webinar provided a great occasion to reflect upon these issues. Please find the full recording below, her presentation starts at 41:00.
