About the programme
The DIGITAL Europe programme aims to build up and strengthen the EU’s supercomputing and data processing capacities, to reach exascale supercomputing by 2022/2023. The objective is 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 are 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. The workprogramme also foresees 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.
The purpose of the Large AI Grand Challenge is to foster the development of large-scale AI models in Europe and to substantially increase the visibility of Europe’s activity in this field. The competition will reward innovative startups and SMEs for devising ambitious strategies and making commitments to develop large-scale AI models t... read more
The Joint Undertaking for High-Performance Computing, EuroHPC, has opened a new call under the Digital Europe programme: Support Centre for HPC-powered Artificial Intelligence (AI) Applications (DIGITAL-EUROHPC-JU-2023-AISC-03-01), a Simple Grant call with 50% funding rate.

The Project SeafoodTomorrow is a project that is approved within the call BG-08-2017: Innovative sustainable solutions for improving the safety and dietary properties of seafood.
The three-year SeafoodTomorrow project brings together 34 partners. From Flanders, ILVO takes part in the project.They are responsible for setting up two databases which are the central point of the project to gather all the project data from analysis and assessement. ILVO is also leader of the workpackage dealing with authenticity, traceability and labelling. ILVO is also involved a the workpackage about novel food preparation. And in the managerial part, ILVO is head of the IPC- Intellectual Property Comité.
