This is a potentially interesting opportunity for commercial users of BioExcel applications.
The Sixth Call for Applications to SHAPE (Small and Medium Enterprise HPC Adoption Programme in Europe) invites applications from European SMEs with an interesting idea that would benefit from High Performance Computing.
SHAPE aims to work with the selected SMEs to introduce HPC-based tools and techniques into their business, operational, or production environment. The selected solutions should bring a potential tangible Return on Investment to the SMEs business.
The SHAPE process is as follows: the SME applies to the programme via the online or downloadable form http://www.prace-ri.eu/shape-application-form/ . The applications are then reviewed and rated, based principally on the strength of the business case and technical feasibility of the proposed work. The successful SMEs then can receive machine time on a PRACE system, and most importantly effort from a PRACE expert to work alongside the SME in evaluating and/or developing the HPC-based solution. In return the SME provides in-kind effort, publicity of their participation in SHAPE, and a public white paper on the work achieved in the project at its conclusion.
