The ESCAPE-2 project on energy-efficient scalable algorithms for weather and climate prediction at the exascale was formally launched with a kick-off meeting at ECMWF from 2 to 4 October 2018.
It will build on the success of the ESCAPE project, which has achieved remarkable gains in computing efficiency by developing the concept of ‘weather and climate dwarfs’.
Like its predecessor, ESCAPE-2 is a three-year project coordinated by ECMWF and funded by the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 Future and Emerging Technologies for High-Performance Computing (FET-HPC) programme.
It brings together 12 partners, including national meteorological and hydrological services, HPC centres, hardware vendors and universities.
