The priority outcomes of this call for proposals are to exploit public data and supercomputers as a first step to establish a new generation of Digital Service Infrastructures (DSIs) supporting the Digital Single Market priorities on supercomputers.
Priorities and funded actions:
– To address the issue of scalable exploitation of the massive amount of public and open data available and accessible from different sources, including (but not exclusively) through the European Data Portal;
– To associate datasets from e.g. public organisations, sectors and countries with the capacity of supercomputers (HPC – High Performance Computers)
– A future new generation of public services exploiting supercomputing facilities and public data to analyse complex combinations of large public datasets in areas of public interest e.g. natural resources (e.g. on soil, forest, water, fish stock…), public infrastructures (e.g. congestion levels), atmospheric data, pollution data, agriculture data (e.g. in relation to pesticide or fertilisers) etc. ;
– A better use of public data for citizens, supporting more optimal use of resources for economic actors and helping fact-based decision making for public authorities
Among financed actions
– Identify the service and a clear set of cases including the targeted application area and/or cross-areas;
– Identify the relevant input data (including public sector datasets) and ensure seamless access;
– Demonstrate the need of using supercomputing resources to achieve the stated goals
