SHAPE Access for Norwegian SMEs

The 12th Call for Applications to SHAPE is now open. Sigma2 encourages Norwegian Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) to apply.

Why apply for SHAPE? 

SHAPE (SME HPC Adoption Programme in Europe) offers European SMEs the opportunity to:

  • Use HPC for business innovation
  • Increase competitiveness
  • Benefit from the expertise and knowledge developed within the top-class PRACE Research Infrastructure.

The 12th Call for Applications to SHAPE invites applications from SMEs with an interesting idea that would benefit from High Performance Computing and 
Sigma2 encourages in particular Norwegian Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) to apply.

SHAPE is supported by the PRACE project. Successful applicants to the SHAPE programme will therefore receive assistance from PRACE HPC experts and access to top-class PRACE Research Infrastructure.

How to apply?

Calls to the SHAPE programme run every six months. SMEs apply via an online form (guidance is available from Sigma2 at this stage if required). Applications are reviewed by a PRACE-appointed committee. 

The 12th Call is open until 1st of December 10:00. For more details on the SHAPE call, please visit the SHAPE Access page.
