UNWE Will Participate in Establishing a National Competence Center in the Area of HPC, HPDA and Artificial Intelligence
Within the EuroCC project under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 (H2020), 33 participating countries are tasked with establishing a single National Competence Centre (NCC) in the area of high-performance computing /HPC/, high-performance data analytics /HPDA/ and artificial intelligence /AI/ in their respective countries.
The project aims to elevate the participating countries to a common high level in the fields of HPC, HPDA and artificial intelligence. To this end, the EuroCC project will establish National Competence Centres /NCCs/ in the participating countries, which will be responsible for surveying and documenting the core HPC, HPDA, and AI activities and competencies in their respective countries. Ultimately, the goal is to make HPC available to different users from science, industry, public administration, and society.
These NCCs will coordinate activities in all HPC-related fields at national level and will serve as a contact point for customers from industry, science, (future) HPC experts, and the general public alike.
The Bulgarian team consists of experts from the Institute of Information and Communication Technologies /IICT/ at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences /BAS/, University of National and World Economy /UNWE/ and St. Climent Ohridsky University of Sofia.
The objective of Bulgarian team is to establish the Bulgarian National Competence Center /BNCC/ in the area of High-Performance Computing /HPC/, High Performance Data Analytics /HPDA/ and Artificial Intelligence /AI/ which will work to develop the three kinds of technology in the country and support their application by the Academics, industry, public administration, and the general public alike.
The EuroCC project is funded 50 percent through H2020 /EuroHPC Joint Undertaking (JU)/ and 50 percent through national funding programs within the partner countries.
In the frameworks of the project a survey on technology penetration related to the high-performance computing /HPC/, high-performance data analytics /HPDA/ and artificial intelligence /AI/ in Bulgaria is being held.
