The SHAPE [1] programme (SME HPC Adoption Programme in Europe), led by the European research infrastructure PRACE [1], opened on 22 June 2016 its 4th call for applications towards European SMEs. Based on the model of the French HPC for SMEs [1] Initiative, carried out by Bpifrance, GENCI and Inria [1] between 2010 and 2015, SHAPE intends to support the use of HPC [1] by European industry, in particular SMEs. 

SHAPE [1]'s assistance, which includes expertise and access to PRACE [1] computing resources for targeted tests, allows the selected SMEs to demonstrate the gain in competitiveness achieved with HPC [1]

2 French SMEs were selected among 8 in the past call for applications of SHAPE [1].

SHAPE [1]'s 4th call for applications will end on 9 September 2016.
