Breu explicació del projecte / Brief explanation of your project
Co-funded by the European High-Performance Computing Joint Undertaking (EuroHPC JU) under the powers delegated by the European Commission (EC), the 3rd Phase of the Center of Excellence in Weather and Climate Simulation in Europe, ESiWACE3 focuses on supporting the weather and climate modelling community to achieve a better level of preparedness for the coming era of exascale supercomputing.
Led by the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC), ESiWACE3 brings together climate modelling groups, HPC centres and technology industry partners to generate synergies between local efforts, provide targeted support to modelling groups through customised HPC services, and provide training to educate the next-generation of researchers.
The project will focus on three main objectives:
1. The transfer and establishment of knowledge and technology for efficient and scalable weather and climate simulations across the Earth system modelling community in Europe;
2. Close common technology gaps in the knowledge and toolbox for high-resolution Earth system modelling through joint developments across the European community; and
3. To serve as a sustainable community hub for training, communication and dissemination of high-performance computing (HPC) for weather and climate modelling in Europe.
ESiWACE3 seeks to be established as a community science platform providing specific services, benchmarks and tools. This platform will be the primary driver of the continuous innovation and co-design cycle needed to address the significant challenges imposed by climate change.
