EU Council Agrees on Regulation Expanding EuroHPC’s Supercomputing Role in Artificial Intelligence Development

The EU Council announced an agreement on regulation expanding EuroHPC’s scope in artificial intelligence (AI) development. The agreement follows the European Union (EU) Council’s decision to include AI factories to boost the artificial intelligence ecosystem and back the startups. 

EU Council Expands EuroHPC’s Supercomputing Scope

The Council of the European Union (EU) disclosed plans to amend the present regulation that governs the European High Performing Computer Joint Undertaking (EuroHPC). It expands the scope for supercomputer utilization in developing artificial intelligence (AI). 

The EU note on Friday May 24, confirmed updating the regulation to include the objective of developing and running local AI factories. The EU illustrated that the undertaking could offer additional infrastructure that supports AI supercomputing services. 

The European Commission’s proposal behind the amendment scales on the foundational achievement of EuroHPC. It involves the entity established in 2018 to lead the European supercomputing initiatives. 


Today, the EuroHPC manages nine supercomputers within the bloc that have been developed since the initiative’s start. The EU considers that establishing the new AI factories, as conveyed by the amendment, will expand this mission. 

The EU Council illustrated that expanding the supercomputing capacity will facilitate AI startups with better resources for innovating and training models in the bloc.

Willy Borsus, who serves as Wallonia’s vice president and economy minister, illustrated the collective effort to realize the unity milestone. 

Supercomputer Role in Artificial Intelligence 

Borsus indicated that Europe’s strength lies in its unity. Such has helped attain great goals, particularly in developing world-class supercomputers. 

Borsus reiterated the objective of optimizing the outcome realizable from powerful machines via trustworthy artificial intelligence. 

The EU Council urges the EuroHPC Governing Board to prioritize establishing special access conditions for AI supercomputers. Prioritizing startups and supporting small- to medium-sized enterprises are critical.

The new regulation indicates that hosting entities can benefit from 50% of the cost of acquiring and running the artificial intelligence. 

Also, the machine’s ownership is transferable to the hosting entities in 60 months post-acceptance testing.

The AI supercomputers are primarily oriented to developing, assessing, and validating scaled AI training models and emergent AI-powered applications. Doing so is considered vital to advance AI-based solutions within the EU. 

The proposed regulation is set for legal review before its approval. The approval will pave the way for its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union. It becomes effective 20 days after its publication.

The European Commission’s proposal constitutes a critical element of the broader AI initiative that the EU’s president Ursula Leyen unveiled recently. The initiative portrays a strategic move to bolster Europe’s AI capabilities.

The EU leads the course in deploying artificial intelligence policies for implementation across the region. 

The EU passed a landmark AI Act in March of this year. It became the global template for AI regulations, given its comprehensive nature uniquely tailored towards safety and ethical AI development in the region.
