RISC2 Project: Exploring the real and potential impact of High-Performance Computing (HPC) on Latin America and Europe


About RISC2

The European Project RISC2 aims to create a network to support the coordination of High-Performance Computing (HPC) research between Europe and Latin America, by promoting the exchange of best practices.

The project focus on boosting Latin American HPC, on promoting the interaction between researchers and policymakers in both regions, and on strengthening their connection, towards the definition of a coordinated policy and concrete roadmap for the future.

The RISC2 project, led by the Barcelona Supercomputing Center, includes 16 partners from 12 different countries.

RISC2 project’s main goals are to explore the real and potential impact on HPC, namely in coping with environmental and scientific challenges, to gather key European HPC actors to encourage stronger cooperation between their research and industrial communities on HPC application and infrastructure deployment, and to establish a solid bridge between European and Latin American HPC communities.
