Europe’s second high-end exascale supercomputer has found its home: it will be hosted by the Très Grand Centre de Calcul of the French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission in Bruyères-le-Châtel (France) and operated by the “Jules Verne” consortium.
Featuring massive computing capacity, it will help solve societal challenges in several areas, such as energy (e.g. support fusion energy development), health (e.g. fast analysis of genomic data for virus mutations, rapid disease detection), and management of climate change (e.g. providing high-resolution weather forecast models). It will also advance our capabilities in quantum computing simulation.
It will be accessible to European researchers and industry as of 2025. It will be designed with ambitious energy efficiency criteria advancing sustainable supercomputing for a greener future.
