Full name:
High-level specialised application support service in High-Performance Computing (HPC)
01.02.2024 – 31.01.2028
The main objective of the EPICURE project is to establish support activity for EuroHPC user applications at Level 2 and Level 3. The existing support groups organized by supercomputer centres hosting EuroHPC JU supercomputers have not provided such services so far. As part of the project, a support group will be established, Application Support Team (AST), whose main task will be to cooperate with the EuroHPC JU application evaluation office and directly support projects that have obtained computing time on EuroHPC JU resources. The main tasks undertaken by AST are:

  • installing required user applications on supercomputing resources,
  • analyzing the effectiveness of customized software,
  • analyzing the dependence of scaling complexity on the size of the research problem,
  • adaptation of codes to existing numerical libraries,
  • optimization of codes for efficiency of access to storage resources offered by EuroHPC JU supercomputers,
  • optimization of the computational efficiency of calculations.

ACC Cyfronet AGH is carrying out all the project's main activities with a special focus on adapting scientific applications to EuroHPC JU supercomputer architectures and improving their scalability.

Full name: My Personal AI Mediator for Virtual MEETtings BetWEEN People
Duration: 01.01.2024 – 31.12.2027
Aim: The Meetween project aims to build the science-based technology solutions needed to power Europe's next generation of video conferencing platforms and support and facilitate business collaboration across the European Union. Comprehensive, integrated algorithmic capabilities offered by fundamental models and self-supervised training on large data sets will be used to adapt agilely to the participant's context, cultural and regional specificities, including linguistic ones. Protecting the European vision of artificial intelligence is also an important aspect of the project.

The main role of Cyfronet in the Meetween project is to enable the launch of the machine learning process on a large scale using the HPC infrastructure. Tools will be created to test the efficiency and correctness of AI models. The ranking, which will be created automatically, will make it easier for scientists to decide on further training, optimisation and development of AI models.

Full name: 
Towards GEMINI: A Generation of Multi-scale Digital Twins of Ischaemic and Haemorrhagic Stroke Patients
01.12.2023 – 30.11.2029
The GEMINI project aims to provide validated multi-organ and multi-scale computational models to support therapeutic decisions and improve fundamental understanding of ischemic and hemorrhagic acute strokes. Precisely, GEMINI will deliver validated, integrated, multi-scale, multi-organ Digital Twin in Healthcare (DTH) models for cerebral blood and cerebrospinal fluid flow, brain perfusion and metabolism, blood flow and thrombosis along the heart-brain axis by integrating available and newly developed dynamic, interoperable and modular computational models.

ACC Cyfronet AGH is responsible for co-creating good practices for producing complex medical computer models, considering their ability to run on HPC resources and standardising their input and output parameters. Based on the prepared practices, virtual twin models will be created, which will then be tested on a large scale - the same model will be used for a large cohort of patients using the HPC infrastructure.

Full name: PIONIER-Q Polish Quantum Communication Infrastructure
Duration: 01.02.2023 - 31.07.2025
Aim: The PIONIER-Q consortium is a response to the EuroQCI initiative. PIONIER-Q combines the activities of the Polish Quantum Communication Infrastructure community. The PIONIER-Q project aims to provide a quantum critical distribution infrastructure and a quantum communication network using the existing fibre infrastructure of the PIONIER network. Encryptors and devices for quantum key distribution (QKD) will be installed at selected network points. QKD devices will send a symmetric encryption key to the encryptors in both locations over dedicated optical fibres. This key changes its form cyclically and will be used to encrypt data transmitted between locations that send their data via a standard transmission channel. The quantum encryption key will be sent via a quantum channel, so according to the principles of quantum mechanics, it will not be possible to intercept information sent via such a channel. Spying on the quantum transmission will damage the key, which will become useless, and the surveillance layer will notify about such an event. The QKD Quantum Key technology will add a layer of security to the encryptors, thus dramatically increasing the protection of the transmitted data.

Full name: A Distributed Open Marketplace for Europe Cloud and Edge Services
Duration: 01.01.2023 – 31.12.2025
Aim: Cloud computing is recognized as a central element of Europe's digital future, giving European enterprises and public organizations the data processing technology they need to support their digital transformation. The European Commission has therefore stepped up its efforts to support the take-up of the cloud in Europe as part of its strategy, in particular by committing to ‘facilitating the creation of a market for cloud services for EU users in the private and public sectors’. The implementation of the DOME project will deliver means of access to trusted services, in particular cloud and edge services, building blocks deployed under the common service platform, and, more generally, all software and data services developed under EU programs such as the Digital Europe Programme, Horizon 2020 or Horizon Europe. Building on the Gaia-X program and open standards, DOME will provide a technical complement to the Digital Europe program supporting the development and adoption of trusted Cloud and Edge services in Europe. The project will provide a single access point allowing customers and service providers to meet each other based on trust. ACC Cyfronet AGH will be responsible for the integration of solutions related to data markets as well as service and data portals. The implemented tasks will be based on the integration of system solutions previously implemented by ACC Cyfronet AGH in the EOSC environment. The aim of these actions is to make solutions available not only to scientists but also to industry.

Full name: An Ecosystem for DIgital Twins in Healthcare
Duration: 01.10.2022 – 30.09.2024
Aim: The main goal of the EDITH project is to support the development of ecosystems for so-called 'digital twins' in healthcare in Europe. As part of the project, the architecture of an integrated system will be developed to implement the concept of the "digital twin" of man, based on standardised metadata and models, as well as a vision of its further development. Based on this, a cloud-based federated repository of computational models and data will be created using currently available resources and best practices. The conditions for integration in the repository will be identified regarding the required standards, regulations and metadata. To validate the developed ecosystem concept, the framework of the simulation platform will be presented. User communities (healthcare professionals, patients, academia and industry) will be actively involved in this process to ensure that their needs are incorporated into the proposed ecosystem architecture.

EPOS has now entered the operational phase of the infrastructure built under the EPOS PP and EPOS-IP projects. It is assumed that the operational phase of the EPOS infrastructure is to last until 2040, but it is possible to extend it. As part of it, the resources of the thematic nodes are made operational. Poland provides a thematic node of TCS AH (Thematic Core Services Anthropogenic Hazard).
