ADVANCED COMPUTING PORTUGAL 2030
Advanced Computing Portugal 2030 is a dynamic and evolutive process aimed to promote and expand Advanced Cyberinfrastructure (ACI) in Portugal by a factor of 100 in the coming decade and until 2030. It considers close international collaborative actions and has been planned in a way to foster all advanced scientific computing fields, as well as mobilizing data processing in an effective and diversified way, among industry and academic communities and in all areas of knowledge and the economy, including health, climate, energy, mobility, and the study of social processes.
Vision for 2030
- A thriving Advanced Computing Services Economy, involving Academia, Industry, SMEs and the Public Sector;
- Portugal is a key provider of Advanced Computing Software and Services;
- Portugal as an Advanced Computing Living Lab Environment;
- Portugal is a reference in Education and Training of People in fundamental and applied
- Advanced Computing knowledge areas.
ACP.2030 is a science, innovation and growth strategy to foster Advanced Computing in Portugal in the European context, oriented towards building a high-performance computing world-reference network infrastructure. The strategy comprehends 3 main areas of intervention: to create an infrastructure of supercomputing in the country at the service of research and innovation; to develop and retain high valued people with strong advanced computing skills; and to put in place an info-structure of public policies to fill the gap between the infrastructures and people in a way that fosters the creation of high valued services and software.
Lines of action
Promoting advanced computing networks for health applications, in a way to foster health services to patients in association with the massive use of datasets and data processing tools by physicians and health care units.
Promoting advanced computing networks for earth observation and the sustainable development, in a way to foster the preservation of biodiversity through data services to citizens, government organizations and industry, in association with data banks and data processing tools for agriculture, forests, fisheries and climate-energy interaction, among other fields.
Promoting advanced computing networks for mobility patterns, in a way to foster data services for citizens, government organizations and industry in association with data banks and data processing tools for maritime transportation (including space driven autonomous shipping), road transportation and urban environments (including car to car communication), among other fields.
promoting advanced computing networks for people communication (involving online translation), social networks, behaviors and attitudes, in a way to foster social wellbeing through data services to citizens, government organizations and industry, in association with data banks and data processing tools for public services, among other fields.
Promoting advanced computing networks for new challenges in the frontiers of knowledge, including in particle physics, plasma physics, chemistry, astronomy, fluid dynamics and molecular modelling and cellular processes, among others
National Network for Advanced Computing
- Many Operation Centres and Competence Centres, one National Network for Advanced
- Computing (NNAC);
- NNAC supervises ACP.2030, coordinating OCs and CCs;
- Federates the OCs providing common authN authZ, accounting, monitoring and
- access interfaces;
- Interconnect the OCs and CCs with dedicated high-performance network connectivity
- provided by FCCN-FCT integrated in RCTS;
- A one-stop shop for new users to expand areas and bring new users, particularly industry
- (incl. SME’s);
- Promote standards adoption and best practices to create interoperability;
- Promote a Research, Innovative and Entrepreneurial environment;
- Prepare the future by modernizing the infrastructure and provide access to future
- computing models (quantum, neuromorphic).
