RISC-V Summit Europe 2023 – meet HaDEA-managed projects participating in the event

The RISC-V Summit Europe brings together developers, architects, technical decision and policy makers from across the European RISC-V ecosystem to discuss the future of RISC-V computing in Europe. The event takes place in Barcelona from 5 to 9 June 2023, and it comprises keynotes, invited and selected talks. Horizon 2020 and Horizon Europe projects will be able to exhibit their achievements, deliverables and their work in progress.

Discover Horizon 2020 and Horizon Europe projects managed by HaDEA that are participating in the summit:

  • HiPEAC is a European network of almost 2 000 world-class computing systems researchers, industry representatives and students, comprising actors and stakeholders in the field of cyber-physical systems (CPSoS). It provides a platform for cross-disciplinary research collaboration.
  • RISER is developing the first all-European RISC-V cloud server infrastructure, significantly enhancing Europe’s open strategic autonomy. The project is working on open-source designs for standardised form-factor system platforms that will be suitable for supporting cloud services and deploying cloud applications. RISER plans are to enable the integration of low-power components in a novel energy-efficient cloud architecture.

RISER organised a workshop on 9 June at 13.20 about RISC-V for Cloud Services, which also featured the participation of the three projects listed below.

  • AERO  aims to complement the efforts of the EPI project by developing the open-source software ecosystem required to not only improve the efficiency of the EPI hardware but also accelerate and ease the processor’s integration into the cloud.
  • OpenCUBE is setting out a full-stack solution of a validated European Cloud computing blueprint to be deployed on European hardware infrastructure. The project will provide a unified software stack that captures the different best practices and open-source tooling on the operating system, middleware, and system management level.
  • Vitamin-V is deploying a complete RISC-V hardware-software stack for cloud services based on innovative cloud open-source technologies for RISC-V cores with a special focus on European Processor Initiative cores. It incorporates an innovative RISC-V virtual execution environment providing hardware emulation and simulation.


Horizon 2020 was the EU’s multiannual funding programme between 2014 and 2020. H2020 provided Research and Innovation (R&I) funding for multi-national collaboration projects alongside individual researchers and SMEs via special funding instruments. Horizon 2020 was continued by the Horizon Europe Programme, which will run until 2027.
