In the light of a closer cooperation between the two associations, ETP4HPC and BDVA co-organised a technical exchange meeting on July 4th as part of an EXDCI technical workshop. The focus was on paving the way for a better understanding of the intersections in scope, research directions and priorities of both platforms. In former meetings, the difficulty was finding a common technical language and perspective on common subjects as compute infrastructure and requirements for its next generation.
