    Options for reaching the next level of performance for high-end HPC architectures, which must be both usable and affordable, are strongly limited by the underlying hardware technologies. The key strategy for designing and realising such exascale HPC infrastructures under such constraints is to adopt a co-design process. In a co-design process knowledge about applications and algorithms is exploited for architecting new solutions, while at the same time knowledge about architectures is used for designing applications and algorithms. Co-design processes have already been used since long for designing special-purpose computers for Lattice QCD. In this talk we report on selected examples for realising co-design for developing new HPC architectures and technologies using different kind of applications and highlight the role for co-design for the development of future HPC.
