The Centre for Research and Technology Hellas (CERTH) is one of the largest research centres in Greece. It was founded in 2000 and is located in Thessaloniki, Greece. The mission of CERTH is to promote the triplet Research – Development – Innovation by conducting high quality scientific research and developing innovative products and services while building strong partnerships with industry (national and international) and strong collaborations with research centres and universities in Greece and abroad.
CERTH, and more specifically the Information Technologies Institute, has a significant experience in modeling, discrete event & discrete time simulations, cloud and high performance computing, big data analytics and optimization. CERTH, as the leader of H2020 CloudLightning simulation platform, will adopt the existing framework for the needs of the RECAP use cases and optimization engine. The experience and expertise of the personnel will ensure the efficient performance and robustness of the different use case scenarios.

Role in the Project
CERTH’s main activity in the RECAP project is focused on the development and validation of the Large Scale Simulation Framework (WP7). This involve the design, implementation, and integration and validation of the simulation frameworks with the optimization engine for the envisioned use-cases. In WP2 (Dissemination and Exploitation) CERTH will contribute mainly by research efforts in order to increase the innovation capacity of software engineering and simulation discipline.
