The Fortissimo Project

Enabling Manufacturing SMEs to benefit from High Performance, Computer-based Simulations

Fortissimo is a collaborative project that enables European SMEs to be more competitive globally through the use of simulation services running on a High Performance Computing cloud infrastructure. The project is coordinated by the University of Edinburgh and involves 123 partners including Manufacturing Companies, Application Developers, Domain Experts, IT Solution Providers and HPC Cloud Service Providers from 14 countries. These partners are engaged in 53 experiments (case studies) where business relevant simulations of industrial processes are implemented and evaluated. The project is funded by the European Commission within the 7th Framework Programme and is part of the I4MS Initiative.

The Fortissimo project has received funding from the European Union's Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement No 609029.
