Intel® Academic Program for oneAPI
Intel connects with universities and students worldwide to evolve the Intel® oneAPI Toolkits and the Data Parallel C++ (DPC++) language through interaction with the academic community. Intel® oneAPI Toolkits enable developers of all types to build, test, and deploy performance-driven, data-centric applications across CPUs, GPUs, and FPGAs.
"It’s exceptionally important to us that GROMACS is able to make efficient use of all the fastest supercomputers in the world, and the upcoming exascale machines powered by Intel hardware will make it possible to simulate processes we could not even imagine a few years ago, such as how a virus binds to proteins on a cell and infects it."
— Dr. Erik Lindahl, professor of biophysics, GROMACS Development Team, KTH Royal Institute of Technology
"By using Intel® DPC++ Compatibility Tool, hand-tuned CUDA codes were migrated with almost no effort (only a few small fixes applied, with no prior knowledge on DPC++). With migrated code, we obtained speed-ups of up to 9.5x on DG1 (versus Gen 9.5 GPU) for two-way and three-way epistasis detection on different datasets."

"My area of interest is computer architecture, more specifically FPGAs. Hardware design based on high-level specifications has evolved considerably and is likely to make the use of HDL unnecessary in most projects. SYCL seems to me a promising standard, mainly because it is open."
— Dr. Ricardo Menotti, Federal University of São Carlo
"One of our strategic goals is to make a measurable contribution to the transfer of new technologies from research to industrial application, and of course, to continuously expand our expertise and research efforts in the field of supercomputing. The oneAPI CoE will allow us to do both."
— Dr. Vincent Heuveline, professor and director of the Computing Center of Heidelberg University
