• Advancement of supercomputing through collaboration between users and designers of hardware and software for supercomputers.
  • Encourage the interrelationship between groups of researchers from the project.
  • Encourage the creation of a broad culture of Supercomputing in Spain.
  • To influence the design and the efficient use of supercomputers.
  • Assist in the design of a supercomputer of a speed exceeding 10 Petaflops the end of 2010.
  • Participation in the EU's future actions.
  • Get support from the EU, through 7FP to consolidate the activities and results of the project and its participants.

The main aim of this Consolider proposal is offering a national framework for research groups expert in supercomputing applications to collaborate together with expert hardware/software machine designers in order to design and use these machines efficiently in the near future.
