Spring 2024 solicitation will focus on topic areas associated with the HPC4Materials (HPC4Mtls) and HPC4Manufacturing (HPC4Mfg) Programs.

DOE’s HPC4Mtls Program is interested in collaborations that address key challenges in developing, modifying, and/or qualifying new or modified materials that perform well in severe or complex environments through the application of HPC, modeling, simulation, and data analysis. These objectives are met by providing access to national laboratory supercomputing resources and expertise for high performance computing projects. HPC4Mfg Program is interested in establishing collaborations that address key energy and decarbonization related challenges for domestic manufacturers. The HPC4Mfg Program is designed to improve manufacturing processes, address products’ lifecycle energy consumption, and increase the efficiency of energy conversion and storage technologies.

Eligibility for the HPC4EI Program is limited to entities that manufacture in the United States for commercial applications and the organizations that support these entities. The solicitation will encourage applicants to partner with a diverse range of universities, community colleges, and non-profit organizations, especially those located in disadvantaged communities, to ensure the equitable use and benefits of HPC National Laboratory resources and technologies.

Selected projects will be awarded up to $400,000 to support compute cycles and work performed by the National Laboratory. The industry partner must provide a participant contribution of at least 20% total project funding. The industry contribution must come from non-federal funding sources.
