Fortissimo 2 is a follow-on action to the European project Fortissimo established in 2013 and aimed to build and operate a commercial HPC Cloud for giving European industrials, especially SMEs, access to an tailored offer of simulation services and thus enabling their competitiveness.
Developed in the context of Fortissimo, a "single access point" is now available for companies. They can find here the tools they need to deploy their industrial project. Applications, expertise or even computing resources are offered on a pay-per-use basis: https://www.fortissimo-marketplace.com/infopage/
In order to support the development of this platform, Fortissimo 2 launched a call for proposals for industrials, in particular European SMEs. It will give SMEs the opportunity to deploy and integrate, in the context of experiments, their project of numerical simulation on the HPC Cloud infrastructure developed in the first part of Fortissimo and will lead to the creation of a HPC services ecosystem on this platform.

The call for proposals is now open and will close on 18 May 2016 at 17:00 Brussels local time.
