About this programme

About the programme 

The DIGITAL Europe programme aims to build up and strengthen the EU’s supercomputing and data processing capacities, helping us to reach exascale supercomputing – computing with a power comparable to aggregating the computing capabilities of the mobile phones of the EU’s entire population – by 2022/2023. It aims to reach post-exascale capabilities by 2026/2027. 

DIGITAL also intends to increase accessibility and broaden the use of supercomputing in areas of public interest such as health, environment, security, and industry, including small and medium-sized enterprises. 

Actions under Special Objective 1 – High-Performance Computing will be managed by the Euro HPC Joint Untertaking (EuroHPC JU). The EuroHPC JU has the mission to develop, deploy, extend and maintain in the Union an integrated world class supercomputing and data infrastructure and to develop and support a highly competitive and innovative High Performance Computing (HPC) ecosystem, extreme scale, power-efficient and highly resilient HPC and data technologies. 

EuroHPC will aim to federate the hyper-connected supercomputing and data infrastructure and interconnect it with the European data spaces and cloud ecosystem (see Special Objective 2) for providing computing and data services to a wide range of public and private users in Europe. It is expected that there will be calls for the expression of interest for the acquisition and operation of the first exascale EuroHPC supercomputer and for the acquisition and deployment of mid -range EuroHPC supercomputers. Other actions will refer to the access to and allocation of EuroHPC computing resources and services.

EURHISFIRM - Long-term data for Europe

EURHISFIRM designs a world-class research infrastructure (RI) to connect, collect, collate, align, and share detailed, reliable, and standardized long-term financial, governance, and geographical data on European companies. EURHISFIRM enables researchers, policymakers, and other stakeholders to develop and evaluate effective strategies to promote investment, economic growth and job creation. The RI provides the tools for long-term analysis highlighting the dynamics of the past and the way those dynamics structure our present and future.

The EURHISFIRM European project received € 3.4 million in financing from the European Commission through the H2020-INFRADEV-2017-1 research infrastructures call. The project started with a consortium of eleven research organisations (including University of Antwerp) from seven European countries.
