An Italian research organisation, with its Computational Infrastructure and Smart Projects team, is currently dedicated to designing, implementing, managing and developing platforms for the provision of high-performance computing (HPC) and ICT services.
Concerning participation in Horizon 2020, the research group is particularly interested in joining consortia for developing projects related to the management and monitoring of wildfires under the Green Deal call (area 1), or more generally, in joining project proposals in areas of common interest.
The research centre already has an ongoing collaboration with law enforcement and the fire brigade for the development of applications aimed at crisis management, such as support activities in the interventions of the fire brigade in emergency assistance as well as the creation of a connection management system for crisis situations.
The research organisation is interested in joining existing consortia, and finding a coordinator for developing a project under Green Deal Call, area 1 (LC-GD-1-1-2020 - Preventing and fighting extreme wildfires with the integration and demonstration of innovative means - Innovation Action), or other calls where strong competencies in HPC would be required.
The research centre could offer its own HPC cluster, its network and high performance storage management expertise to further develop services related to new project proposals under the Green Deal call.
