French Supercomputers Plan of "the New Face of Industry in France"

This plan aims to place France as a world player in of high performance computing and improve the competitiveness of French industry by mastering and development of numerical simulation.

• Push hardware and software technologies to achieve exaflop performance.

• Reinforce the sector specific initiatives : Healthcare, Plants, City, Food Processing, Materials, Multimedia, Manufacturing, etc

• Encourage small businesses and industrial firms to use more and more HPC technologies by supporting their plans to do so.

• Implement appropriate advanced education systems across the country.

President of TERATEC

MIHPS, Master of science in Informatics, High Performance Computing and Simulation

MIHPS is a Master of Science devoted to the training of top scientists able to acquire two major technological developments: the systematic use of parallelism (from multicore computers to supercomputers) the use of numerical simulation industry and research.
A major feature of this master is to give future graduates a multidisciplinary skill, an expertise of high performance computing and parallel computing and an expertise of modelling / simulation techniques.

Exascale Computing Research Lab
a focus on software applications for exascale, open to external partners

The Exascale Computing Research centre (ECR) is the fruit of the collaboration between CEA, GENCI, the University of Versailles-Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines and Intel. The mission of ECR is to conduct R&D studies in co-operation with European researchers on applications that are critical for industries and HPC users from European universities.

European industry and research centres join forces to create a European Technology Platform for High Performance Computing

Major European suppliers of High Performance Computing (HPC) technologies, ALLINEA, ARM, BULL, CAPS Entreprise, EUROTECH, PARTEC, STMICROELECTRONICS and XYRATEX associated with HPC research centres BSC, CEA, CINECA, Fraunhofer, Forschungszentrum Juelich and LRZ have decided to combine forces to create a European Technology Platform (ETP), building on the previous work of PROSPECT and TERATEC.

An essential factor in corporate competitiveness

High Performance Simulation is both an essential factor in corporate competitiveness and an absolutely vital tool for major scientific challenges. Thus it enables experts to design products more rapidly which are better suited to customers’ requirements and furthermore to analyse and understand complex phenomena.

Promoting High Performance Simulation is, therefore, a priority both for the industrial world as well as for the academic community and provides also an opportunity for IT specialized companies.

With this objective in mind major players in these different fields have created the Ter@tec association together with local authorities keen to develop technological activities in their territory.

TERATEC Forum 2014 - Report
HPC helps companies by boosting their competitiveness! That was one of the main observations that the Teratec Forum illustrated during 2 very dense days.

The first day's talks highlighted how rapidly HPC has been expanding in France and the extent to which it has been adopted by the government in France and even Europe via major decisions, such as the official launch of the "Supercomputers" plan, one of the first of the 34 plans adopted by the French government; it was approved on May 7 by Minister of Industrial Recovery Arnaud Montebourg and President François Hollande.

July 2, technical workshops reviewed emerging technologies and new adomains of high performance computing applications.

During the 2 days of the forum, more than 1,200 participants learned about the latest hardware and software innovations in high performance computing: digital simulation, supercomputers, visualization, graphics cards, open source, Cloud, GPU, Big Data, storage, cluster, engineering services, virtual prototyping, R&D, scientific computing, and more. All the components of HPC were represented at booths in the Grand Hall, offering tangible evidence of the expertise of this year's 65 exhibitors at the Forum.

"The most remarkable change is probably how many new industrial sectors are using high performance computing and simulation" stated Pascal Faure, director general of the French Ministry of Economy at the Teratec Forum 2014 plenary session opening, "simulation is becoming affordable for small and medium sized businesses and industries" and that we must "underscore the technological excellence France has achieved in the field of high performance computing"
