EC-funded Research Visits: Application Deadline 15/08/2004

HPC-Europa, a consortium of 11 leading European centres, is calling for applications from researchers working in Europe to visit any of the 6 centres in its Transnational Access programme. Visitors will use HPC-Europa's High Performance Computing (HPC) facilities to advance their research, while working in collaboration with a scientific researcher from an appropriate local research institute. The programme is fully funded by the EC's Structuring the European Research Area programme, and offers:
- access to some of the most powerful High Performance Computing (HPC) facilities in Europe; - HPC consultancy from experienced staff;
- opportunities to collaborate with scientists working in related fields at a local research institute;
- travel costs, subsistence expenses and accommodation (may     be in a shared flat);
The 6 HPC-Europa centres offering Transnational Access are: CEPBA-CESCA-IBM (Spain), CINECA (Italy), EPCC (UK), HLRS (Germany), IDRIS (France) and SARA (the Netherlands).
Applications for the programme are welcomed from academic or industrial researchers at any level, from senior postgraduate students to the most senior researchers, who are working on non-proprietary research in any discipline to which access to HPC facilities is beneficial.
Applicants must be working in a research group based in an eligible country, i.e. any EU member state or Associated State (see full list at ). Note that researchers are NOT eligible for visits to centres in the country where they are currently carrying out their research. Researchers who do not have access to similar HPC facilities are particularly encouraged to apply.
The selection panel approves applications on the basis of scientific merit. For this reason, applicants are strongly encouraged, where possible, to identify a suitable researcher with whom to collaborate before applying, as this greatly increases the chances of the application being approved.
Applications should be made using the on-line application form at and must be received by 15 August 2004 for the selection meeting in September. Successful applicants will visit for between one and three months, during the period from October 2004 to March 2005.
HPC-Europa is funded for 4 years from January 2004. Selection meetings will be held 4 times per year.
