Leti, Liten, and INAC cut the ribbon on the new Predictive Simulation Center on September 25, 2017. The cross-disciplinary center, staffed by around 60 simulation experts, does not yet have its own facility, a situation that is expected to change within a year. What the center does have is the combined simulation know-how of three top-tier research institutes operating under a single name and a capacity to offer comprehensive services—placing it in an excellent position to win EU projects. By the end of 2017, the center will also have a 1,500-core machine worth €400,000 to round out its intensive computation resources. The computer, housed in Building T on the CEA Grenoble campus, will also foster expanded cooperation with PFNC, whose electron microscopes and other equipment require major computing resources.
