Today scientists and engineers are commonly faced with the challenge of modelling, predicting and controlling multiscale systems which cross scientific disciplines and where several processes acting at different scales coexist and interact. Such multidisciplinary multiscale models, when simulated in three dimensions, require large scale or even extreme scale computing capabilities. Progress in science and technology is limited by our ability to solve efficiently such problems on available distributed computing infrastructures. The MAPPER project will respond to this critical need by developing computational strategies, software and services for distributed multiscale simulations across disciplines, exploiting existing and evolving European e-Infrastructure. Driven by seven challenging applications from five representative scientific domains (fusion, clinical decision making, systems biology, nano science, engineering), MAPPER will deploy a computational science environment for distributed multiscale computing on and across European e-infrastructures. By taking advantage of existing software and services, as delivered by EU and national projects, MAPPER will result in high quality components for today's e-Infrastructures. We will advance the state-of-the-art in high performance computing on European e-Infrastructures by enabling distributed execution of multiscale models. We will develop tools, software and services that allow two modes (loosely - and tightly coupled) of multiscale computing, in a user friendly and transparent way. We will integrate our applications into the MAPPER environment, and we will demonstrate their enhanced capabilities by answering one challenging scientific question related to each application. We plan to collaborate with other projects on adaptation of successful MAPPER methodologies, and will work with resource providers to develop policies facilitating the new multiscale computing paradigms.

Project finished but MAPPing continues
During the past three years the MAPPER project developed and deployed tools and services to support distributed multiscale computing over European e-infrastructures.
MAPPER brings generic multiscale modelling and seamless (distributed) multiscale computing to science and engineering in Europe. MAPPER has already trained and supported not only scientists within the project, but also a growing external user base, and MAPPER partners continue to do so, relying on an extended set of freely available training materials and tutorials. By using MAPPER, we were able to develop complicated multiscale models, and execute huge multiscale simulations by relying on aggregated computing power available in Europe. This resulted in remarkable new insights and discoveries, published in a growing body of scientific papers.
Please be invited to explore the MAPPER pages for respective documents, tools, training material, or publications.
Although the official MAPPER project finished end September 2013, the consortium agreed to continually provide additional material as it becomes available for further investigating the exciting world of multiscale computing.
