MaX mission


MaX was born to support developers and end users of advanced applications for materials simulations, design and discovery, and works at the frontiers of the current and future High Performance Computing (HPC) technologies.

We enable the best use and evolution of such technologies for materials research and innovation. We are creating an ecosystem of capabilities, applications, data workflows and analysis, and user-oriented services to sustain this effort.

At the same time, we are enabling the exascale transition in the materials domain, by developing advanced programming models, novel algorithms, domain-specific libraries, in-memory data management, software/hardware co-design and technology-transfer actions.

MaX is one of the eight ‘European Centers of Excellence for HPC applications’ supported by the EU under its H2020 e-INFRA-2015 call.
