The future of EuroHPC is bright

Anders Dam Jensen, Executive Director, EuroHPC Joint Undertaking

The European High Performance Computing Joint Undertaking (EuroHPC JU) is a joint initiative between the European Union, European countries and private partners to develop a World Class Supercomputing Ecosystem in Europe.

The EuroHPC Joint Undertaking allows the EU and EuroHPC participating countries to coordinate their efforts and pool their resources with the objective of deploying world-class exascale supercomputers in Europe.  
By making Europe a world leader in high performance computing (HPC), the EuroHPC JU seeks to provide computing capacity, improve cooperation in advanced scientific research, boost industrial competitiveness, and ensure European technological and digital autonomy.

In this talk, Anders Dam Jensen, Executive Director of the EuroHPC JU, will offer an update on the current state of play, his insights on the future of European HPC, and opportunities for industry.
