Founded in 1425 KU Leuven is one of the oldest universities in Europe, dedicated to excellence in research and teaching and ranked consistently in the top 100 universities of the world.



KULeuven will participate in the work package “Co-design application” as an applications partner. The institution will provide access to two of its codes: the first one is used in the study of space plasmas, and has been developed following the standards of previous DEEP projects, targeting the MSA; the second is a Machine Learning python package that contains multiple techniques for the analysis of spacecraft and simulation data. Both applications will be put to the service of all the work packages of the project. Tools, techniques and software will be used in these two applications to improve its performances and to test the different components of DEEP-SEA. KULeuven will work as an expert in the applications, giving support to the different developers in the project, guiding them towards possible solutions and helping in the evaluation of the different components. The end goal of KULeuven is to test a full scientific application that makes use of the components developed in DEEP-SEA.


In the DEEP-ER project KU Leuven participates with the Center for mathematical Plasma Astrophysics (CmPA). The CmPA has an active policy of collaborations in Europe and in the US and it is part of the Leuven Mathematical Modelling & Computational Science Centre (LMCC), the Leuven Centre for Aero & Space Science, Technology and Applications (LASA) and is involved in the Exascience Lab (part of the Intel Exascience Europe).


As part of the application team, KU Leuven works on optimising its space weather application for the DEEP-ER system. The nature of the applications allows researchers to study approaches for I/O and checkpointing for conditions not seen in other applications.
