6th PRACE Project Access

Posted on 8 October 2012

The European PRACE (http://prace-ri.eu) organisation has opened the 6th Call for Proposals on the 18th September 2012. PRACE encourages researchers from across Europe to apply for access to its world class resources for research with potential high European and international impact. PRACE resources are available through three forms of access:

  • Multi-year Access,
  • Project Access and
  • Preparatory Access.

Multi-year Access is available to major European projects or infrastructures that can benefit from PRACE resources and for which Project Access is not appropriate. Project Access is intended for individual researchers and research groups including multi-national research groups and has a one year duration. Calls for Proposals for Project Access are issued twice yearly. Preparatory Access is intended for resource use required to prepare proposals for Project Access. Applications for Preparatory Access are accepted at any time.

The Call for Proposals for 6th PRACE Project Access (Tier-0) is now open. Dates for this call:

  • Opening date: 18th September 2012
