The video collects some experiences of EuroCCItaly partners, do not miss their stories!
A lot of new opportunities for Italy thanks the National Research Center in High Performance Computing, Big Data and Quantum Computing
Starting from 2022 thanks to PNRR investment the collaboration between idustry and research is now possible
Started the activities to build Leonardo Supercomputer.
New agreement was signed between Emilia Romagna and Catalogna reagions.
What is EuroCC Italy?
EuroCC Italy is a competence center that deals with technology transfer to the industrial world. Within the project, the Italian Center is part of the EuroHPC Competence Centers Network consisting of thirty-three competence centers, one for each European country. The long-term objectives of EuroCC Italy are to structure and strengthen the collaboration between research groups and institutes, HPC data centers and companies, to support SMEs in innovation projects and to create awareness about the productive advantages possible through the use of the different solutions in the HPC / HPDA / AI field.
Support for innovation
One of the aims of the project is to support innovation in the national industrial set-up, especially within Italian small and medium-sized enterprises, making them aware of the potential offered by the most modern technologies in the field of supercomputing (HPC), big data analysis ( HPDA) and artificial intelligence (AI). Through specific technological support actions, the Italian Competence Center allows companies to test enabling technologies and then apply them to the real production system, thus making them more competitive and able to innovate their products.
The National Competence Center (NCC) has developed different levels of training for companies in the HPC / HPDA / AI field to provide highly specialized skills to companies with the aim of keeping up with the rapid evolution of industrial processes with a view to to innovate products and services.
In addition to training courses, the project includes internship programs dedicated to and to young people to give them the opportunity to develop professional skills in the HPC field.
Here the program of the courses.
What are EuroCC Access and Castiel?
EuroCC Access is the common access portal of all National Competence Centers (NCCs), which provides a map of each person’s skills and activities in the HPC / HPDA / AI field and constitutes a meeting place for the exchange of best practices, guidelines, success stories between the different NCCs and within which the different National Competence Centers can activate strong collaborations supported by the Coordination and Support Actions dictated by the CASTIEL project, in order to fill existing gaps in HPC skills and promote collaboration across Europe.
Upcoming courses and events
WeatherAI wants to develop a second generation of AI analytics, more portable and scalable than the first-generation ones, trained on optimized datasets.
Video streaming is now ubiquitous and fundamental for numerous business applications, including web streaming, remote sensing and satellite monitoring. Current efforts are being made into designing new video codecs that can reduce the bitrate required for storage and transmission of high-quality videos.
To enable a variety of big data applications, the market needs highly efficient data management technologies: satellite data are notoriously big, raising challenges not only from the perspective of analytic applications, but also to be efficiently stored and retrieved.
AyraDB was designed to address these challenges.
The project confirmed the potential of ML models in the field of air pollution, to produce air quality forecasts at high spatial resolutions with a lower computational burden than that required for Chemical Transport Model (CTM) simulations.
Within the National Competence Center (NCC) EuroCC Italy, funded by the European project EuroCC Access, a program has been activated for the development and promotion of High Performance Computing (HPC) tools, advanced simulation and high data analysis. performance in order to promote innovation in industry and the public sector at the national level.
NATIONAL COMPETENCE CENTERS
At the heart of EuroCC Italy we find Italian excellence in the field of high technology. Five National Competence Centers give life to the project thanks to their expertise and long history of activities in the field of supercomputing, artificial intelligence and training.
Who they are? Let’s find out together:
NCC Partner Countries
Technology transfer projects implemented
Cascade technology transfer projects
Focused training courses
