Fourteen partners have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to create a permanent research platform called STRATOS. The MoU was signed by the 12 partners of PRACE  — the Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe — and
two associated partners.

STRATOS stands for "PRACE advisory group for Strategic Technologies." STRATOS has the goal to become a unique collaboration of PRACE partners and industry either directly or through consortia which include PRACE members. The objective of STRATOS is to foster the development of high performance computing technologies in Europe.

The MoU was signed on 16 December, 2008 in Barcelona, Spain. The association Ter@tec acceded to the STRATOS MoU on 12 March, 2009.

Industrial and other innovative European HPC development projects engaged in development or evaluation of HPC technology can become members of STRATOS for the runtime of the projects.

The final cooperation agreement of the STRATOS partnership will be established as soon as the PRACE research infrastructure has become a European legal entity. During an initial period, STRATOS shall be governed by the MoU.

PRACE's goal is to prepare the way for the creation of a persistent pan-European HPC service, consisting of several tier-0 centers providing European researchers with access to capability computers and forming a top level of the European hpc ecosystem. The PRACE project is funded partially by the EU's 7th Framework Program.
