About this event

We are in the middle of a digital revolution being driven by data and intelligence, including technologies such as High-Performance Computing (HPC), Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML). Many SMEs can benefit from using High Performance Computing and Data Analytics techniques in their business but are put off because of worries about the complexity, the lack of skilled personnel and the cost.

The aim of this webinar is to present to SMEs how they can strongly benefit from the use of advanced HPC services (modelling & simulation, data analytics, machine learning and AI, and possibly combinations thereof) and thereby take advantage of these innovative ICT solutions for business benefits. Furthermore, the success story from the previous Fortissimo project will be presented to inspire SMEs and some good use cases of collaboration with National Competence Centers will be highlighted.

All the information on the second Open Call will be provided- SMEs are invited to participate in the FF4EuroHPC Open Call and gain new business opportunities with a help of HPC. For the second Open Call, EUR 5 Mio fund is offered, approx. EUR 200,000 per experiment.
