46 successful projects submitted by eight institutions have been allocated over 55 million core-hours in the IT4 Innovations National Supercomputing Centre. The projects with the greatest amount of allocated computation time fall within the field of material science.

Who is to use IT4Innovations computational resources and for what?

The winner of the 13th Open Access Grant Competition was the project submitted by Ing. Dominik Legut, Ph.D. dealing with the study of thermal expansion and conductivity of new nuclear fuels for 4th generation reactors, which has been allocated more than 10 million core-hours. 

The second highest allocation, 7.5 million core-hours, was assigned to the project submitted by prof. RNDr. Mojmír Šob, DrSc. from the Central European Institute of Technology, CEITEC MU, Masaryk University in Brno, for the development of new advanced materials.

The third highest allocation of more than 3 million core-hours was allocated to the project submitted by RNDr. Lubomír Rulíšek, Ph.D., DSc., of the Institute of Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic, which focuses on the reaction mechanisms of metaloenzymes, catalysts of biochemical reactions. His project falls within the field of bioscience, which occupied the imaginary second place. Altogether, ten bioscience projects have earned more than 13 million core-hours, i.e. almost one-quarter of the total allocated computing time.

Concerning organization, about one-quarter of the total allocated computing time was given to 12 applicants from VŠB-Technical University of Ostrava, and therefore from IT4Innovations. Successful projects also included 4 projects from the University of Ostrava.

Successful applicants can use the awarded computational resources until February 2019.
