CLAIRE (Confederation of Laboratories for Artificial Intelligence Research in Europe), CINI (Italian National Inter-University Consortium for Informatics) and ABD (Associazione Big Data), signed memorandums of understanding (MoU) to enable the CLAIRE and CINI communities to develop their research using supercomputers provided by the Members of the Associazione Big Data (CINECA, CMCC, ENEA, INFN).

This MoU is aimed at facilitating the interaction between HPC and AI scientists, and to establish the basis for HPC+AI-enabled digital twin technology, improving preparedness for future pandemics and new challenges. In the European landscape, access to HPC infrastructure for research projects on COVID-19 is guaranteed by several national and pan-European initiatives, such as the PRACE and the ABD initiative.
