LEONARDO, jointly funded by EuroHPC and CINECA (one of the MeDiTATe project partners) on behalf of the Italian Ministry of University and Research, has ranked 4th in the latest Top500 list of most powerful supercomputers in the world.

LEONARDO is one of the three pre-exascale systems of the EuroHPC Joint Undertaking (EuroHPC JU). The project is part of the actions that the European Union has been implementing to support the spread of High Performance Computing for research applications.
