ESCAPE Training resources
ESCAPE aims to develop world-class, extreme-scale computing capabilities for European operational numerical weather prediction (NWP) and future climate models. ESCAPE addresses the ETP4HPC Strategic Research Agenda 'Energy and resiliency' priority topic, developing a holistic understanding of energy-efficiency for extreme-scale applications using heterogeneous architectures, accelerators and special compute units, to address the biggest challenge for state-of-the-art NWP which arises from the need to simulate complex physical phenomena within tight production schedules.
A collection of training material developed as part of the ESCAPE project are available at the following link: ESCAPE Training
