Belgium joins EU supercomputer drive

Belgium has become the eighth country to commit to a joint European effort to build the next generation of high-performance computing and data infrastructures.

The Belgian government signed the EU’s declaration on high-performance computing, which pledges to develop an integrated European supercomputing infrastructure, on 9 June.

The declaration was first launched in March by the governments of France, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Portugal and Spain during a meeting in Rome. Its objective is to develop two supercomputers based on European technology by 2020, which should be fully operational and capable of carrying out at least a billion billion operations per second by 2023.
