New exascale era for European supercomputing for health uses

0n 15 June 2022 the European High Performance Computing Joint Undertaking (EuroHPC JU) announced the selection of five new sites which will host the next generation of European supercomputers, including the first European exascale supercomputer, JUPITER. These new systems will power new applications in a wide range of areas, from designing medicines and new materials to fighting climate change.

The inauguration of these new sites is relevant for the in silico medicine community as it is a clear sign that the EU is willing not only to invest in this kind of system but also to highlight and promote the role of supercomputers in tackling societal challenges and promoting medical and biomolecular research.

The press release specifically highlights personalised medicine and the development of new drugs as key uses of the supercomputers, emphasizing the increasing recognition of the health potential of computer modelling and simulation through HPCs.

Key highlights

  • The sites selected to host the supercomputers are located in Germany, Greece, Hungary, and Poland.
  • Once connected, the new systems will serve a wide range of users in the European research and scientific community, as well as industry and the public sector.
  • The announcement came one week after the inauguration of another supercomputer, the fastest and most energy-efficient one in Europe, LUMI, located in Kajaani, Finland.
