Work Package


Awareness Creation and Community Support

The work package on awareness creation and community support is one of the cornerstones to guarantee the project success, given that one of the main goals of HiDALGO is to establish a self-sustaining interface between stakeholders and the products intended to face global challenges. Therefore, it is essential that the results achieved in the project are widely disseminated and constitute the basis of further research across scientific and business-oriented communities.


Requirements Evolution and Component Integration

The objectives of this work package are tripartite: first, the requirements for HiDALGO are captured and evaluated in order to form a common ground for developments and a shared baseline between the work packages. Second, this work package is taking care of the implementation of one of the cornerstones of the project, namely the Artificial Intelligence supported workflow.


Centre Implementation and Operation

This work package is responsible for the deployment, operation and maintenance of the HiDALGO Portal and the underlying infrastructure as well as the support infrastructure for customers (in the initial phase Pilot users) of the centre. This WP has a strong relationship with WP3, WP4 and WP6, which interconnect their functionality on different domains. Summarising, the aims and goals for WP5 are:


Pilot Applications

This work package addresses the definition and implementation of the three pilot case studies, which make use of the developments of the technical, but also the business-oriented work packages. The case studies have been selected with the focus on real-world problem statements and their applicability. Consequently, they follow an individual exploitation path but, at the same time, validate the HiDALGO technology and services.


Exascale HPC and HPDA System Support

The overall goal of this work package is to provide knowledge, algorithms, methods and tools for highly efficient data processing and analysis. The scope of the work is to achieve highest possible performance (Exascale computation) as well as efficient and agile data management.  


Business Models and Sustainability

The goal of this work package is to create a valuable, viable and sustainable Centre of Excellence that follows a clear strategy towards a return of investment. In order to implement this strategy, the risk-profiles, the magnitude of investments and the values of the developments need to meet the partners’ requirements. Therefore, the objective of this WP is to articulate, quantify, compare and promote this investment to all stakeholders, inside and outside the consortium.


Project Management

The objectives of this work package are of tripartite nature: project coordination, technical management and administrative controlling. The objectives of the project coordination can be summarised as follows:
