• Lecture: European Processor Initiative

We invite you to a guest lecture by Dr. Mario Kovač from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing in Zagreb, where he will speak about the European Processor Initiative (EPI) project and RISC-V architectures. The lecture will take place on Thursday, March 14, 2024, at 1:00 PM in lecture room P21.

Brief lecture description:

Digital sovereignty has become a key requirement for the EU, which is now striving to move from a simple user of ICT technologies to a main player on the digital market, both for products and human skills. The need for the EU (and the EuroHPC JU) to deploy European world-class exascalesupercomputers in Europe is urging. The European Processor Initiative (EPI) develops a roadmap for future European high-performance low-power processors aligned with the EuroHPC roadmap. EPI focuses on processor technologies based on the ARM HPC processor architecture and on architecture and HPC accelerator technologies based on RISC-V, the open-source ISA. RISC-V is also the candidate to become Europe’s own technology for covering long-term objectives. This phase also seeks to expand the scope of the project into adjacent European and global vertical markets that can leverage HPC to enable new and improved systems and solutions.
