2nd October 2015 – DIAS helps UCD and NUIG win major H2020 project

The European Commission is investing some 140M in a range of High Performance Computing projects across Europe.

DIAS has been instrumental over the last decade in building up Ireland’s High Performance Computing infrastructure and is delighted that, as a result of this investment, we have now been able to work with UCD and NUIG to bring the leadership of one of the “Centres of Excellence” to Ireland.

The E-CAM Centre of Excellence will be coordinated by UCD, is chaired by Prof Luke Drury from DIAS, and has the Irish Centre for High-Performance Computing, hosted by NUIG, as a major partner. It will run for 5 years and has a total approved budget of 4.8MEuro. The official launch will be on the 20th October in the Royal Irish Academy.
