MaX CoE Cooperation on EOSC-hub Week 2019

The Materials design at eXascale (MaX) is one of the High-Performance Computing Centers of Excellence (HPC CoE) that was invited to showcase how MaX is seamlessly integrating with European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) and how Aiida and Materials Cloud tools are paving the way of the new computational materials science and to grant streamlined access to HPC.

The second edition of the EOSC-hub Week that was held on 10-12 April 2019 at the Vienna House Diplomat in Prague, Czech Republic, brings together both present and future service providers and users of the European Open Science Cloud.

During the event, an open call for users and service providers was launched with stronger involvement from the HPC CoE through interactive sessions dedicated session entitled “The HPC Centers of Excellence in the EOSC arena”.

Giovanni Pizzi from École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), one of the MaX partner, that presented MaX in the EOSC event. He presented the “Pathways for EOSC-hub and MaX collaboration” on the 11th of April.

MaX aims at automatically track Data provenance & provide HPC resources as a service. The added value of Materials Cloud is the chance to track the provenance of the full workflow.


This opens the opportunity to explore the collaboration between EOSC and HPC CoEs and sought to understand the synergies and the complementarities on which both EOSC-Hub and the HPC CoEs can capitalise on for mutual benefit to how EOSC-hub can further support HPC CoEs activities.
