FETHPC-02-2019Extreme scale computing technologies, methods and algorithms for key applications and support to the HPC ecosystemd.l. 24-09-2019
Call FETHPC-02-2019 (subcall de: H2020-FETHPC-2018-2020)
Call - FET Proactive – High Performance Computing
Orçamento 68,00 M€
Specific Challenge: To develop world-class extreme scale, power-efficient and highly resilient High Performance Computing and data technologies, and to provide support for a sustainable exascale HPC ecosystem in Europe, enabling collaborations among the relevant stakeholders.

Scope: A. Research and Innovation Actions

Proposals should address the development of extreme scale computing technologies, methods and algorithms through a strong co-design approach driven by ambitious extreme computing and data applications and in close cooperation with the scientific disciplines and stakeholders concerned.
The designs of the technology should respond to critical demands of performance, energy efficiency, scale, resilience, programmability, dynamic workflows etc. Proposals should describe clear metrics and targets when addressing these demands, quantify progress with respect to the state-of-the-art, and address the research challenges with a holistic view and their impact on the whole computational process including data movement and storage.
Proposals should clearly articulate how research will have a significant impact in enabling ambitious extreme-scale scientific and engineering applications.

Where relevant, proposals should also provide a path towards long-term standardisation of the technologies (e.g. system software architecture, programming models, APIs, etc).

Proposals should clearly identify and address at least one of the following areas:
a.    System software and management, addressing adaptive and dynamic scheduling; heterogeneity of system components; efficient data access, transfers and communication, novel execution models for emerging HPC and High Performance Data Analytics (HPDA) usages, etc.
b.    Programming environments, reducing programming complexity and increasing scalability through advancements throughout the programming model and system software stack, and addressing code maintainability and functional portability across existing and future architectures and systems. Interoperability throughout the programming environment should be addressed.
c.    I/O and storage environment for data-centric extreme scale computing addressing overall system performance predictability, feature-rich and flexible data access and storage system API’s, backup and retrieval of extreme volumes of data and systems operation in virtualised operating environment.
d.    Data-intensive supercomputing and emerging HPC use modes addressing efficient implementation of established Big Data software frameworks and workloads on extreme-scale HPC systems, including the integration of Big Data and HPC programming models; algorithmic research addressing Machine Learning on HPC systems; interactive use of HPC resources for real time data analysis.
e.    Mathematical methods and algorithms for extreme scalability of computing and data with impact in system energy reduction and resilience, and addressing the usability and the efficient implementation on different HPC architectures. Work should link to HPC and extreme scale data architectures and technologies as well as to relevant applications (e.g. challenges identified by the European Centres of Excellence on HPC).

The Commission considers that proposals for Research and Innovation Actions requesting a contribution from the EU of between EUR 5 and 10 million and a duration of 3 years would allow this area to be addressed appropriately. Nonetheless, this does not preclude submission and selection of proposals requesting other amounts and duration.

Note that special Grant Conditions will apply for projects granted under this topic. Please see under Call Conditions.

B.    Coordination and Support Action

To boost a sustainable European HPC ecosystem by providing activities to structure the community, to promote collaborations and synergies among Horizon 2020 HPC projects, Centres of Excellence on HPC (CoEs), Extreme scale Demonstrators (EsD), to create links with Big Data related activities, and to follow up and cooperate with other relevant international HPC activities. A specific focus will be given to the convergence of HPC and HPDA (High Performance Data Analytics). Activities should also address the following:
  • coordinate the European HPC strategy, and monitor and measure its implementation,
  • produce roadmaps for HPC technology and applications, covering also the post-exascale, and evaluate them through impact monitoring
  • promote the European strategy and the results of the European HPC ecosystem (including at international level), engage with HPC users and foster industry take-up
  • build and maintain relations with other relevant international HPC activities
  • support the generation of young talent.

This coordination and support action should be driven by the relevant actors in the HPC field. It is expected that only one proposal will be selected.

The Commission considers that proposals for Coordination and Support Actions requesting a contribution from the EU of up to EUR 4 million would allow this specific challenge to be addressed appropriately. Nonetheless, this does not preclude submission and selection of proposals requesting other amounts.

Expected Impact: A. Research and Innovation Actions

  • Contribution to the realisation of the ETP4HPC Strategic Research Agenda
  • Addressing important segments of the broader and/or emerging HPC markets, especially extreme-computing, emerging use modes and extreme-data HPC systems, and addressing where relevant the path to industrialisation of results
  • Strengthening competitiveness and leadership of European industry & science, in particular of European technology supply
  • European excellence in mathematics and algorithms for extreme scale HPC systems and applications working with extreme scale data
  • Impact on key scientific or industrial applications with relevance to societal challenges

B.    Coordination and Support Action

  • strengthening the European research and industrial leadership in the supply, operation and use of HPC and HPDA systems
  • contribution to the realisation of the ETP4HPC Strategic Research Agenda
  • structuring the efforts of stakeholders for implementing the European HPC strategy
  • reinforced cooperation in international endeavours on HPC

FETOPEN-01-2020FET-Open Challenging Current Thinkingd.l. 13-05-2020
Call FETOPEN-01-2020 (subcall de: H2020-FETOPEN-2018-2020)
Call - FET Open – Novel ideas for radically new technologies
Orçamento 203,00 M€
Specific Challenge: to lay the foundations for radically new future technologies of any kind from visionary interdisciplinary collaborations that dissolve the traditional boundaries between sciences and disciplines, including the social sciences and humanities. This topic also encourages the driving role of new actors in research and innovation, including excellent young researchers, ambitious high-tech SMEs and first-time participants to FET under Horizon 2020 from across Europe.

Scope: proposals are sought for cutting-edge high-risk / high-impact interdisciplinary research with all of the following essential characteristics ("FET gatekeepers"):

  • Radical vision: the project must address a clear and radical vision, enabled by a new technology concept that challenges current paradigms. In particular, research to advance on the roadmap of a well-established technological paradigm, even if high-risk, will not be funded.
  • Breakthrough technological target: the project must target a novel and ambitious science-to-technology breakthrough as a first proof of concept for its vision. In particular, blue-sky exploratory research without a clear technological objective will not be funded.
  • Ambitious interdisciplinary research for achieving the technological breakthrough and that opens up new areas of investigation. In particular, projects with only low-risk incremental research, even if interdisciplinary, will not be funded.


The inherently high risks of the research proposed shall be mitigated by a flexible methodology to deal with the considerable science-and-technology uncertainties and for choosing alternative directions and options.

The Commission considers that proposals requesting a contribution from the EU of up to EUR 3 million would allow this specific challenge to be addressed appropriately. Nonetheless, this does not preclude submission and selection of proposals requesting other amounts.

Expected Impact:

  • Scientific and technological contributions to the foundation of a new future technology
  • Potential for future social or economic impact or market creation.
  • Building leading research and innovation capacity across Europe by involvement of key actors that can make a difference in the future, for example excellent young researchers, ambitious high-tech SMEs or first-time participants to FET under Horizon 20204.

Type of Action: Research and Innovation action
FETOPEN-03-2019FET Innovation Launchpadd.l. 08-10-2019
Call FETOPEN-03-2019 (subcall de: H2020-FETOPEN-2018-2020)
Call - FET Open – Novel ideas for radically new technologies
Orçamento 2,70 M€
Specific Challenge: This topic aims at turning results from FET-funded projects into genuine societal or economic innovations.

Scope: Short individual or collaborative actions focused on the non-scientific aspects and the early stages of turning a result of an ongoing or recently finished project funded through FET under FP7 or Horizon 20206 into a genuine innovation with socio-economic impacts. The precise link with the relevant FET project and the specific result for which a FET Innovation Launchpad proposal is intended, are to be explicitly described in the proposal. This topic does not fund research or activities that are/were already foreseen in the original FET project. Activities proposed should reflect the level of maturity of the result to be taken up. They can include the definition of a commercialisation process, market and competitiveness analysis, technology assessment, verification of innovation potential, consolidation of intellectual property rights, business case development. Proposals can include activities with, for instance, partners for technology transfer, licence-takers, investors and other sources of financing, societal organisations or potential end-users. Limited low-risk technology development (for instance for demonstration, testing or minor adjustment to specific requirements) can be supported as long as it has a clear and necessary role in the broader proposed innovation strategy and plan.
The Commission considers that proposals for actions no longer than 18 months and requesting a contribution from the EU of up to EUR 0.1 million would allow this specific challenge to be addressed appropriately.

Expected Impact:

  • Increased value creation from FET projects by picking up innovation opportunities.
  • Improved societal and market acceptance of concrete high-potential innovations from FET projects.
  • Stimulating, supporting and rewarding an open and proactive mind-set towards exploitation beyond the research world.
  • Contributing to the competitiveness of European industry/economy by seeding future growth and the creation of jobs from FET research.
