Exa2Green was a 3-year research project co-funded under the EU 7th Framework Program "FET Proactive Initiative: Minimising Energy Consumption of Computing to the Limit". FET (Future and Emerging Technologies) aimed to go beyond the conventional boundaries of ICT and ventures into uncharted areas, often inspired by and in close collaboration with other scientific disciplines.

The objective of NextMuSE was to initiate a paradigm shift in the technology of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and Computational Multi-Mechanics (CMM) simulation software, which is used to model physical processes in research development and design across a range of industries. NextMuSE relies on a mesh-free method, Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH), which is fundamentally different from conventional finite element or volume techniques. SPH offers the possibility of a novel, immersive, adaptive framework for user interaction, and has the potential for integrated multi-mechanics modelling in applications where traditional methods fail.
The HP2C platform aimed at developing applications to run at scale and make efficient use of the next generation of supercomputers. The platform consisted of domain science projects that were lead by research groups at Swiss universities and Institutes of the ETH Domain, and supported by a core group of scientific computing experts in the Lugano area. HP2C was jointly operated by CSCS and the Institute for Computational Sciences of the University of Lugano (USI). Project teams engaged in high-risk and high-impact application development for HPC systems at scale.
