The PRACE partnership aims to establish a pan-European HPC service, consisting of several tier-0 centres providing European researchers with access to capability computers and forming the top level of the European HPC ecosystem. For more information see the PRACE website.

The Memorandum of Understanding was signed by Patrick Aerts, chairman of the PRACE Initiative Management Board, Prof. James Slevin, Director of the Irish Centre for High End Computing (ICHEC) and Prof. M.
