DescriptionHPC is an immensely powerful tool to improve products and services across many industry sectors. It’s also expensive and complex to use the first time a company decides to adopt it. But the benefits are clear and modern industrial economies need increase its uptake if they are to stay globally competitive. In Europe a number of projects have been funded under the I4MS, “Innovation for Manufacturing SMEs”, programme. This talk will describe the largest of them – the Fortissimo projects – which have helped almost 100 manufacturing SMEs in Europe to take their first steps in HPC.
