Description

Aligned and contributing for European and National policies, ATTRACT DIH defines an ambitious plan to support SMEs and public entities in their digital transformation and consolidation through the full exploitation of the synergetic potential between Artificial Intelligence and High-Performance Computing. ATTRACH DIH acts on both the supply and use of technology.

The hub will support technology-based SMEs in the design, development, validation and internationalisation of new products and services that can strongly benefit from AI or HPC, aiming at significant sales volumes at international level. Complementary, the hub will foster and assist potentially adopters of AI or HPC based solutions with dissemination and support initiatives, including the maturity assessment and definition of adoption roadmaps, aiming at leapfrog productivity gains.

To all recipients, ATTRACT will deliver specialized training services, fundraising support and will promote an active innovation ecosystem, including the collaboration with other DIHs at national and European level. To this end, ATTRACT DIH gathers the main AI and HPC research and technology-transfer centres in Portugal and their state-of-the-art experimental facilities, with a specific regional approach and coordination in the country main regions of the North, Centre, Lisbon and Tagus Valey, and South, complemented by two associations, the largest Business Association in Portugal and the Portuguese Data Science Association.

ATTRACT members lead the four national HPC infrastructures and are National Competence Centres for HPC and related technologies from the EuroHPC JU EuroAccess network. As such, the hub is in a unique position to foster the utilisation of the HPC resources available in Portugal in general and to leverage them to enable the training of AI models that would not be feasible on-premises.
