The overall objective of the project:

Baltic Large-Scale Computing (BalticLSC) is an Interreg BSR project dedicated to solving the issue of smaller companies and institutions suffering from the lack of proper access to supercomputing resources and the necessary expertise to use them in the Baltic Sea region.

The specific objectives of the project, are to:

According to Partnership for Advanced Computing (PRACE) Report, EU loses 2-3% of GDP per year due to being behind in the area of large-scale computing, while the situation in the Baltic Sea region is even worse. Therefore, the aim of the project is to significantly increase capacities to create new innovative data-intense and computation-intense products and services by a vast array of smaller actors in the region.

The main planned activities:

The project will analyse and develop a universal and practical solution – the BalticLSC (Supercomputing) Environment: a hardware Platform and easy-to-use Software. It will assure scalability, affordability, ease-of-use, and efficient distribution across the BSR. This solution will comprise business models, end-user requirements, technical designs, hardware prototypes, software tools, knowledge transfer scenarios and practical application recommendations.

The project will implement an initial network of BalticLSC centres that will facilitate building an active community of BalticLSC providers and users. Based on interactions and feedback from innovators, engineers and researchers from across the BSR, the project will work out a solution that is replicable, transferable and easy to disseminate.

To meet the project goals, competences in 3 areas are combined: technology, business development and SME outreach. The consortium is composed of carefully selected partners with competences dominating in one of the areas but also spanning the other two, thus giving good synergy within the consortium.

Project partners: The consortium will be supported by several associated partners. These bodies will use the project results in their statutory activities to enhance the positive impact of the project on SME innovation around the BSR. Also, some of them (research institutions) will support certain technology-related activities.
