The COPPE-UFRJ supercomputer is the “Lobo Carneiro”. The supercomputer of the LNCC, in turn, is the "Santos Dumont". The two supercomputers together offer a capacity of 1.4 Petaflops for COVID-19 research.

Those interested should submit their projects must use the forms and links presented below. The evaluation commissions are working “fast-track” for projects related to COVID-19, so that the proposals can be accepted quickly and remotely.
