High Performance Computing (HPC) in Denmark is increasingly supporting the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This is according to an analysis by Danish national research and education network DeiC.
Of 835 scientific publications based on Danish HPC over the latest five years, 353 (44 %) could be associated with one or more SDGs. The absolute top scorer here was SDG3 (health). No less than 339 publications on the list were categorized as targeting solutions to health challenges. Notably, the time period in question is 2015-2019, meaning the data stem from before the global COVID-19 pandemic which has triggered a further emphasis on health in international research.
