Although the project will be able, in the future, to provide value creation across multiple industrial sectors, the initial focus for the demonstrator will address workflows of strategic importance in the field of “Renewable Energy” and in “Manufacturing” applications where HPC is involved for the design of more Energy efficient products (for example in the design of energy efficient vehicles).
HEROES major innovations reside in its platform selection decision module and its application of marketplace concepts to HPC. The consortium involves 4 European SMEs which bring HPC to their clients and are facing everyday this market demand. A major SuperComputing Research Centre complements the project with its specific expertise in energy management and resource optimisation. HEROES is supported by Meteosim, UL Renewables, EDF and Dallara which will advise on workflows relevant to such use cases. At the end of the project, its outcomes will be commercialised and further reinforce Europe’s capacity to lead and nurture innovation in HPC.
