INCITE Program

Innovative and Novel Computational Impact on Theory and Experiment (INCITE) Program

The INCITE program provides allocations to computationally intensive, large-scale research projects that aim to address “grand challenges” in science and engineering. The program conducts a two-part review of all proposals: a peer review by an international panel of experts and a computational-readiness review. The annual call for proposals is issued in April and the allocations are awarded in millions of core-hours for one to three years.
