About this programme

About the programme 

The DIGITAL Europe programme aims to build up and strengthen the EU’s supercomputing and data processing capacities, to reach exascale supercomputing by 2022/2023. The objective is to reach post-exascale capabilities by 2026/2027. 

DIGITAL also intends to increase accessibility and broaden the use of supercomputing in areas of public interest such as health, environment, security, and industry, including small and medium-sized enterprises. 

Actions under Special Objective 1 – High-Performance Computing are managed by the Euro HPC Joint Untertaking (EuroHPC JU). The EuroHPC JU has the mission to develop, deploy, extend and maintain in the Union an integrated world class supercomputing and data infrastructure and to develop and support a highly competitive and innovative High Performance Computing (HPC) ecosystem, extreme scale, power-efficient and highly resilient HPC and data technologies. 

EuroHPC will aim to federate the hyper-connected supercomputing and data infrastructure and interconnect it with the European data spaces and cloud ecosystem (see Special Objective 2) for providing computing and data services to a wide range of public and private users in Europe. The workprogramme also foresees calls for the expression of interest for the acquisition and operation of the first exascale EuroHPC supercomputer and for the acquisition and deployment of mid -range EuroHPC supercomputers. Other actions will refer to the access to and allocation of EuroHPC computing resources and services.

Limecraft - Powerful workflows for video products

If you’ve never heard of Limecraft, you’re clearly not working in the media sector. Their SaaS platform provides integrated workflows for media management, scripted and unscripted TV, and subtitling and localisation. It is used by leading broadcasting companies – such as BBC, VRT, NPO… – and production firms of which De Mensen or Hotel Hungaria might ring a bell (at least if you are Belgian).

NCP Flanders went to Ghent to interview Maarten Verwaest, CEO and cofounder, about how he sees Horizon 2020. Limecraft is a partner in the MeMAD project, which is a collaborative RIA project submitted to an ICT call topic
