The European High Performance Computing Joint Undertaking (EuroHPC JU) is a joint initiative between the EU, European countries and private partners to develop a World Class Supercomputing Ecosystem in Europe.
LUMI, one of the EuroHPC world-class supercomputers and leading platforms for artificial intelligence, will be located at CSC’s data center in Kajaani, Finland. Operations will start in mid-2021. The supercomputer will be hosted by the LUMI consortium including ten European countries.
The budget for the EuroHPC JU in 2019–2020 is over 960 million Euros, which includes public investments from the EU and participating states as well as investments from private partners. The total budget of the EuroHPC pre-exascale system in CSC’s data center in Kajaani is over 202 million Euros. Half of this funding comes from the EU and the other half from the consortium countries.
LUMI has received additional funding from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) which is granted by Regional Council of Kainuu. ERDF funding for 4.2 million Euros is granted for the period of 10.06.2019-31.12.2020. This funding enables EuroHPC's supercomputer to be located at CSC's Kajaani data center, strengthening the national and international status of Kainuu’s ICT and data center services.
