Center of Excellence in Combustion (CoE-C) : A new European project to make scientific computing a key element in the decarbonization of energy

The “Center of Excellence in Combustion (CoE-C)” project selected by the EU in March 2020 brings together 11 partners from among the European leaders in numerical simulation of combustion, for a total budget of around 5.6 M€. The objective is to develop high-performance software accessible to the industrial sector for the design of innovative technologies. The project is therefore divided into 4 main activities: computing efficiency, modeling, data processing and future technologies.

CERFACS is responsible for WP7: “Technological challenges”, dedicated to the realization of digital and technical demonstrators for various applications.
