EoCoE-II European Center of Excellence


The European center of excellence EoCoE-II brings together 20 partners from 7 European countries around exascale computing for energy-oriented numerical models.
As a follow-up to the proof-of-principle phase of EoCoE (energy-oriented center of excellence), EoCoE-II will build on its unique, established role at the crossroads of HPC and renewable energy to accelerate the adoption of production, storage and distribution of clean electricity.
Involved in 2 work packages, Cerfacs will conduct research around scalable multigrid solvers for the gyrokinetic fusion code GyselaX on the one hand, and surrogate models for uncertainty quantification and data assimilation with 2D hydrodynamics solvers on the other hand.



EXCELLERAT European Center of Excellence and EPEEC project 


CERFACS is now part of the EXCELLERAT Center of Excellence (https://www.excellerat.eu) and the EPEEC project (https://epeec-project.eu).

EXCELLERAT is a European Centre of Excellence for Engineering Applications. The Centre is an initiative of several European High Performance Computing Centres to team up to support several key engineering industries in Europe in dealing with complex applications using HPC technologies.  It conducts  research, provides leadership, guidance on good practice, and user support mechanisms . Its goal is to help Europe leverage scientific progress in HPC driven engineering and address current economic and societal challenges.

EPEEC aims ot bring european parallel programming technology to the exascale era.  It consist of 10 leaders in research and applications from Europe.



CoE RAISE European Center of Excellence 


The European Center of Excellence in Exascale Computing “Research on AI- and Simulation-Based Engineering at Exascale” (CoE RAISEhttps://www.coe-raise.eu/) is a project funded by the European Commission under the Horizon 2020 Framework Programme, European research infrastructures (including e-Infrastructures). In RAISE, researchers from science and industry develop novel, scalable Artificial Intelligence technologies towards Exascale along representative use-cases from Engineering and Natural Sciences.


Medal of the Academy of Air and Space: 3 CERFACS researchers awarded !

Brigitte Yzel |  11 July 2022

The Air and Space Academy awarded Carlos Pérez Arroyo, Gabriel Staffelbach and Jérôme Dombard with the Vermeil medal 2022, to honor the excellence of their work in the realization of the FULLEST project, the first high-fidelity simulation of an aircraft engine. Thanks to PRACE for awarding the access to the Joliot-Curie supercomputer (GENCI hosted at CEA/TGCC) and to DGAC for the funding of the ATOM project (No 2018-39) led by SAFRAN Tech. FULLEST also benefited from developments done in European projects:  EXCELLERAT (H2020 823691) and EPEEC (H2020 801051).  Read more


CERFACS |  4 July 2022

CERFACS will participate to the Paris meeting dedicated to the memory of Roland Glowinski from July 5th to 7th. Thierry Poinsot will present the advances of HPC in the field of energy and combustion. Roland Glowinski was CERFACS direcfor for 3 years in the 90s and largely shaped present activities of our research center.Read more
