  • HBP - The Human Brain Project
    In the "Human Brain Project" (HBP), which is funded by the European Commission, leading research institutions work together to better understand the human brain. For that purpose the project partners will develop new simulation methods, for example on high performance computers. The project aims to develop new therapeutic approaches for the treatment of brain diseases and new methods of High Performance Computing. Project duration: 10/2013 - 06/2016

Information and Knowledge Extraction in the Life Sciences

  • IDSN
    In the project IDSN (Integrative data semantics for neurodegenerative research) Fraunhofer SCAI, the Deutsche Zentrum für neurodegenerative Erkrankungen (DZNE) and the Universitätsklinikum Bonn (UKB) cooperate to improve the early recognition of dementia diseases. For that purpose they analyze clinical data and research data in an overall view. Project duration: 03/2016 - 02/2019

Services for SMEs using HPC Clouds for simulations

  • Fortissimo and Fortissimo 2
    Fortissimo and Fortissimo 2 are collaborative projects that enable European SMEs to be more competitive globally through the use of simulation services running on a High Performance Computing cloud infrastructure. SCAI contributes to Fortissimo 2 with its expertise in two technology domains:

    - advanced data analytics for big amounts of numerical simulation data and
    - flexible licensing mechanisms for pay-per-use models in clouds.
    Project duration: 11/2015 - 10/2018
