A billion billion, i.e. 10^18 computer operations per second (1 exaflop/s) is the level of performance that the next generation of supercomputers should be able to deliver. However, programming such supercomputers is a challenge. In October 2015, the EC began funding "ExaHyPE", an international project coordinated at the Technische Universität München (TUM), which seeks to establish the algorithmic foundations for exascale supercomputers in the next four years. The grant totals EUR 2.8 million.
