FFplus (Fortissimo plus), the  European initiative highlighting and promoting the adoption of High-Performance Computing (HPC) by SMEs and start-ups across Europe, has announced its first Open Call to fund business experiments (Type 1) and innovation studies (Type 2).


Business experiments will address the uptake of HPC by SMEs in order to solve specific business challenges of SMEs that have had no prior use of, or experience with, HPC services.


Innovation studies, in contrast, will support European SMEs and Start-ups already active in the field of generative AI technology, which lack the necessary computational resources to scale up.


The First Open Call was launched on June 21st and will remain open for submissions until September 4th, 2024, at 17:00 Brussels local time.


Moreover, Open Call Webinars will be organised by FFplus on July 1st and July 8th, 2024. Find information on the webinars in the “Business Experiments” and “Innovation Studies” pages below.
