Call for Proposals: High Performance Computing & Networking Fund for UvA Researchers

The High Performance Computing and Networking (HPCN) Fund is open for applications from UvA researchers. Proposals can be submitted for any initiative that would contribute to the availability of HPCN facilities for generic applications. The deadline is 31 May 2019.

The HPCN Fund is managed by the Faculty of Science and aims to provide the UvA with HPCN facilities to make a positive contribution to the e-Science infrastructure.

Through the Fund, the e-Science infrastructure must become accessible to as many UvA scientists as possible. In addition, the fund aims to increase the income from second and third funding in the field of e-Science research. To achieve these objectives, researchers are invited to submit proposals.

The HPCN Fund has an annual value of €960,000, €150,000 of which is made available for proposals each year.

Proposals can be submitted for any initiative that would contribute to the availability of HPCN facilities for generic applications. Relevant areas include:

  • System design
  • Software development
  • Hardware development
  • Representation of research results
  • Seed-matching funds for indirect government and contract funded projects.

All proposals will also be reviewed by Innovation Exchange Amsterdam. As many companies are interested in cooperating on HPC projects, there is potential for added value in terms of valorisation, in addition to funding.

Proposals can be submitted only once a year, from: 1 April to 31 May. Responses to proposal will be issued on 1 June.

Who can participate? Academic staff employed by the UvA.
