The main mission of the consortium is to create a model for the reviewing of the applications and the selection of the most challenging. The target is to produce a procedure suitable for the largest possible number of Research Infrastructures and Initiatives, to cover potentially the whole panorama of RIs. The procedure will be then presented and offered as a best practice to all HPC initiatives and centers, as well as to scientific communities that may take advantage from it. In details, HPCW main activities will be focused on:

  • Analysis and assessment of the models, implemented in the involved HPC centers as well as in other RIs, of:

 access to the infrastructures

 reviewing of the applications
 selection of the most challenging and valuable research projects;  

  • Creation, on the basis of the results of such analysis, of a common model for reviewing and selection of researchers, to be proposed to the next generation of peta scale facilities in Europe and world-wide;
- Validation of the model by the European e-Infrastructures community;
  • Potential extension of the model to non-European centers and HPC and not-HPC related projects
