Official Journal of the European Union

L 252/1



of 28 September 2018

establishing the European High Performance Computing Joint Undertaking


Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union, and in particular Article 187 and the first paragraph of Article 188 thereof,

Having regard to the proposal from the European Commission,

Having regard to the opinion of the European Parliament,

Having regard to the opinion of the European Economic and Social Committee (1),




Public-private partnerships in the form of Joint Technology Initiatives were initially provided for in Decision No 1982/2006/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council. (2)



Regulation (EU) No 1291/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council (3) establishes Horizon 2020 – The Framework Programme for Research and Innovation (2014-2020), ‘Horizon 2020’. It aims to achieve a greater impact with respect to research and innovation by combining Horizon 2020 and private sector funds in public-private partnerships in areas where the scope and scale of the resources in research and innovation are justified to the Union's wider competitiveness goals, leverage private investment and help tackle societal challenges in a limited number of cases with a clear European added-value. Those partnerships should be based on a long-term commitment, including a balanced contribution from all partners, be accountable for the achievement of their objectives and be aligned with the Union's strategic goals relating to research, development and innovation. The governance and functioning of those partnerships should be open, transparent, effective, efficient and inclusive, by giving the opportunity to a wide range of stakeholders active in their specific areas to participate.



In accordance with Regulation (EU) No 1290/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council (4) and Council Decision 2013/743/EU (5), support may be provided to joint undertakings established in the framework of Horizon 2020 under the conditions specified in that Decision.



Regulation (EU) No 1316/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council (6) established the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF). CEF should enable projects of common interest to be prepared and implemented within the framework of the trans-European networks policy in the sectors of transport, telecommunications and energy. In particular, CEF should support the implementation of those projects of common interest which aim at the development and construction of new infrastructures and services, or at the upgrading of existing infrastructures and services, in the transport, telecommunications and energy sectors. CEF should contribute to supporting projects with a European added value and significant societal benefits which do not receive adequate financing from the market.



Regulation (EU) No 283/2014 of the European Parliament and of the Council (7) established the guidelines for trans-European networks in the area of telecommunications infrastructure and laid down the sector specific conditions for the telecommunications sector.



High Performance Computing qualifies as a project of common interest in the area of digital service infrastructures identified to be eligible for funding subject to Article 6(1) of Regulation (EU) No 283/2014, namely access to re-usable public sector information, as referred to in point 3(d) of the Annex to that Regulation. In accordance with Article 6(3) of Regulation (EU) No 1316/2013, the Commission may entrust part of the implementation of the CEF to the bodies referred to in point (c) of Article 62(1) of Regulation (EU, Euratom) 2018/1046 of the European Parliament and of the Council (8).
