Last week, President Trump announced the COVID-19 High Performance Computing Consortium, a unique public-private effort spearheaded by the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP), the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), and IBM – along with a growing group of government, industry, and academic leaders – to unleash the power of America’s supercomputing resources to combat COVID-19.

Under Secretary for Science Paul Dabbar is leading the Consortium’s efforts at DOE, and he described them in more detail via a (virtual) interview.

Founded in 1989, the Coalition for Academic Scientific Computation (CASC) is an educational nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization with 93 member institutions representing many of the nation’s most forward thinking universities and computing centers.
