Getting access

Getting compute time on LUMI

50% of the compute time on LUMI will be distributed via EuroHPC calls. The other 50% is distributed among the participating countries according to their contributions to the consortium. Belgium as the second largest participant will get 7.4% of the total compute time on LUMI for its own allocation programs.

Both the EuroHPC and Belgian national track to get access to LUMI will have different access modes, including tracks for academic research, open industrial research, commercial access or preparatory access to prepare a larger proposal or develop exascale software. 

Dates for the next cut-off for the Belgian track: 1st of March, 3rd of June and 7th of October 2024 at 23.59 h CET.

We have separate application forms for the preparatory/development projects and regular projects. Make sure you use the most recent version available on this website. Detailed instructions can be found in a separate document. Please submit your application to lumi-be-support [ati] enccb [dota] be (lumi-be-support[at]enccb[dot]be).

Preparatory/development projects can be submitted continuously and will be reviewed once a month.
