The European Data Infrastructure (EDI) will provide a high-performance computing (HPC) framework with the capability to support the EOSC.
These supercomputers will connect to mid-range EU national computing centres and to software infrastructure to offer what is basically supercomputing-as-a-service across the EU. The framework will be developed from 2016 to 2020.
The EDI would also be accompanied by a large-scale initiative to develop supercomputing through quantum technology, to begin by the end of 2017.
